    Be nice to see an approved pci-e tv tuner like Black Gold tuners for a complete HTPC solution.

    1. Bruce Normann

      For now, TV support is limited to USB tuners. There are about eight models listed in the compatibility table.

      “You may install TV Station from QPKG Center in firmware 3.8.1 or above. A compatible DVB-T USB TV Tuner as listed is required to use this function.”

      Asus My Cinema U3100 Mini
      AverMedia A850(AVerTV Volar Black HD)
      Hauppauge WinTV NOVA-T Stick
      KWorld KW-DVB-T 399U
      PCTV Systems nanoStick Solo 73e SE

        None of those seem to support T2, making them redundant. Plus USB tuners generally suck.
