Has anyone found a pcmcia tv tuner card that works in a laptop under Puppy?

I have an older IBM Thinkpad 600-series I'd like to turn into a lcd TV (with some extra video capture features, of course).

Thanks! doc

I am open to a USB or a PCMCIA solution so long as it is:

a. Affordable
b. Works essentially "out of the box" without months of tinkering.

Here is a company that makes a product that states that they support Linux:

Here is a forum discussing their products:

Anyone tried any of these?

I have a hd3000 card, and a solid grip on compiling but this card is a nightmare to get it just right. The geexbox (8M multimedia iso) supports it has well as others. however the video mode did not play nice with my laptop. Kernel version 2.6.15 has a number of new cleaned up/ support for tuners, I have a USB MSI tuner that finally supported in the newest linux kernel and works well in that other M$ system.
Oh and if Barry is reading 2.6.15 changelog exposes the weirdness issue with BusyBox, seems it likes to hook into kernel stuff that was not planned to be hooked by userspace apps. Kernel has hardned those hooks so less weirdness results.

Is this the one?

Did you mean to say that you have it working under Puppy or that you have it working under another Linux distro and hope Barry upgrades to a newer Linux release so it will work?

Thanks! doc
