TV Tuner for Kodi

Unread postby bomberb17 » Fri Feb 17, 2017 11:16 pm

Hello,
I'm looking to find a compatible TV tuner to run Kodi on Ubuntu server.
I've found from this http://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?f=96&t=21238 topic this USB TV tuner http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/271692267983
I'm not sure it will work with Kodi on ubuntu server though.
Any suggestions?

Yes it will work, it's been supported in the kernel for a long time.

Thanks for answering.
However, it seems that the Kworld 395U is outdated and a little hard to find.
Any other suggestions for a USB DVB-T tuner that will work on ODROID and ubuntu?

I'm in the US and personally use a Hauppauge ATSC dongle so I can't recommend anything.

But look here for suggestions:

Basically any dongle that has full kernel support will work.
