I've seen the blurbs about Ubuntu TV being able to receive from cable and it has EPG and so on, and I'd love to install it on a regular PC that is currently running Windows Media Center.
I don't merely want to have a media player; I specifically want to be able to watch and record live TV via a tuner expansion card. I have tried installing MythTV earlier, but I failed miserably because the instructions I used were US-centric but I'm in Austria (Europe). I couldn't find a way to make the TV tuner work right.
I'm concerned that this time, again, Ubuntu TV will only work really well in the USA.
Given that I'm in non-US country "X", what are my chances of getting Ubuntu TV to work well, specifically with regard to receiving local-region EPG data and also aerial and cable TV signals in PAL and DVB-T formats?
