avermedia duet - linux

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Anyone know if this tv card has linux driver support yet? I'm having windows licensing issues and was thinking about converting to a linux box. I need OTA DVR, DVD, Netflix, and Amazon instant video support.

It doesn't appear to be supported, so a new card that is supported would be needed. Not the most up-to-date list, but all we have:

Also, Netflix is not Linux friendly either.

Yup, looks like if I want to go linux I have to ditch netflix for hulu +. Hulu + does work in linux doesn't it?

I think it requires Flash, which the Google Chrome browser supports.

Actually there's a relatively new Ubuntu package that makes installing Netflix (in WINE) easy. And the package is being ported to other distros. So Netflix on Linux is actually reasonably feasible now.

This clip is worth it just because it's Nixie pixel doing it....

And I heard that it doesn't work very well.

I read that boxee will play netflix on ubuntu, any experience with this?

I saw something that on ehow that said it did too, but never tried it. Boxee has discontinued htpc support though (there might still be old desktop app builds floating around and I don't know if the complete source code was ever released).
