    I haven't had a tv tuner installed for several years now, but back around 2001-2004, tvtime was the only one worth using.

    I use Kaffeine, which works well. It is very straightforward to set it to record.

    Thanks so far. I've uninstalled Kaffeine completely. Why? I really don't like it.
    Thing is that I am looking for a program here...

    I've tried Xawtv, Tvtime, Mythtv and Kdetv all with my old analogue Hauppauge 878 card. All have plus's and minus's, Myth is definitely the best but it's a mind blower to set up Kdetv and Tvtime are both intuative and good. I'm using Tvtime just now as it was the one that let me use my video tape player in SUSE 10.3, in earlier SUSE versions I used Kdetv with no problems. Xawtv...........? Well it works OK but the GUI is terminalistic At the end of the day Kdetv is the one that most people will find easiest as a starting point,

    Hello,

    I had the same question. In my search I will start with MythTV and purchase the HDHomeRun tuner from SiliconDust. I was very impressed with all the very good reviews on the Amazon.com web site. Still have a question on Blu Ray recorders. Are there any favorites that work well on Linux or is it not an issue.
    Thank you
