    Hi everyone! I want to buy the pinnacle Hybrid Pro Stick 330 E, but i don't know if it's compatible. Is there any list or some of you has ever used it on suse?? I also would like to know which application to use to watch tv and listen to radio.

    The IDs in the output of hwinfo --usb and/or lsusb might help with google.

    It's supported by the Linux DVB drivers and uses the em28xx driver.

    Most likely you'll need the firmware from the Windows drivers deposited in /lib/firmware

    Open a terminal, su - to root and type modprobe em28xx then dmesg and see if the card was recognized properly. You'll need the DVB package installed for this to work.

    And now I notice that you said you were looking to buy one - which makes me look like a dufus :-)

    In other words it is supported but may need some tweaking to get going - the support for the dongle itself is present in the drivers that get shipped with 11.0.
