:)  Well from a previous post I can report that a Pinnacle USB nano
stick works in various *buntu flavours once you download firmware and
the likes. I am still having issues making it autoscan for anything
other than SBS but from a bit of digging around this appears to be
common. I have managed to type in the correct incantations to tune it
to other stations but it will not find them.

I am also told that this thing has a little onboard signal amp that I
am unsure if it is on or not as the signal seems low but then does
work.  Of course under winderz (both XP and Vista) it will autoscan
for everything and works fine so I know it is not an antenna issue.

Have fun!  I had never played with a digital tuner let along a 'puter
based one before this and still managed to fumble my way thorough it
with little trouble.
