Re: TV Cards....
I'm using an AverTV-Phone by Avermedia (www.avermedia.com) with kernel
2.2.13, the bttv driver, and xawtv. It works very well. I, too, have
not yet used the IR remote under linux, but I think I've seen somewhere
that it is supported or will be shortly. It's also a pretty good video
capture card. This card is also a stereo tuner, but I haven't tried yet
to use that under linux.
I bought this a long time ago, and then it cost around $75. The newer
version is called TV98 and runs for about $65 (maybe less if you do some
leg-work). I'm pretty sure it is also supported by the bttv module.
Your system specs are certainly enough to run one of these cards.
