We used the Osprey 100 video cards http://www.viewcast.com and found
them to be okay. It is the only model that mentions Linux drivers so I
guess it is the only one that uses the Booktree chipset see
 For other cards with the Bt848/849/878/879 chipsets which have Linux

Implicit in Lujian's is that the Osprey capture card works.  Also the
Hauppage model 495 does work, and might be easier to find.

Greetings to you all!  I've been placed in charge of putting one of
these things together for my University, but before I get started
spending all of their money, I have a few questions I'd like to ask.

1) Has anybody had any particular luck (good or bad) using Intel
processors vs. AMD ones?

2) After shopping around a bit, I'm having a difficult time finding a
place to purchase the Hauppage 401 cards online.  Does anyone know of a
place I can find them, or an equivilent card I could use in its place?

Thanks in advance for your help.
