Got around to testing this little Pinnacle Nano Stick TV dongle which came with a Freegle box of obsolete electronic items. I wasn't sure if it would work easily on Linux, but as usual, just plug and play. I downloaded the Me-TV package and off it went. The software can record to the netbook's hard drive, DVD copies can be made and interestingly the video codec can be selected so the RTE stations in MPEG-4 HD can be viewed. Not bad for, well nothing really.
