    Default DVB-T via PC

    Been investigating various ways to watch TV on a PC here in Spain.
    The software that came with the DVB-T stick isn't that brilliant. So started looking around and found ProgDVB. Has anyone used it.And is it any good. I like the idea of being able to stream the channels to other PCs in the house with the Media client.

    Also has anyone used TVheadend which is for Linux.

    Also saw this one

    I haven't used it myself, but MythTV is supposed to be very good (http://www.mythtv.org).

    HTH,

    I actually have XBMC running on Ubuntu 10.04. So don't really want to go down the MythTv route.
    TVheadend looks pretty good and can be used with XBMC. And has the ability to stream to other PCs on the network.
    All I need to do now is to get my USB TV stick to work in Linux. It came with drivers for Linux but doesn't seem to want to play at the moment.

    Do you have a sat dish?

    If so get a Dreambox then you can stream directly to XBMC and even change channels via XBMC

    Hmm. Thats interesting. Where did you get your dream box from. As I have heard and seen that there are a few fakes doing the rounds.
