I have an EyeTV Hybrid DVB-C USB (plus a few Pinnacle DVB-T ones) receiver which works well under OS X, but I would like to have recording under Ubuntu instead - preferrably with EPG -and share with DNLA to my tv set.

What would be the best way to do so in terms of programs etc?

MythTV. Big and bulky but it supports most hardware and has a built-in UPnP server.

With that you may want to go with Mythbuntu [] which has MythTV heavily integrated into the Ubuntu Desktop environment. – Marco Ceppi Aug 8 '10 at 17:13
