        The integrated GPU is worse than a RX 460, no driver can save that from sucking.

        That said, this was my first thought too, but then I read the article and "Support for the Xbox One Digital TV Tuner, a USB 2.0 TV tuner that supports DVB-T/DVB-T2/DVB-C broadcasts. " confirmed that it's a USB dongle, probably not worth anywhere near its price.

          The XBox One X is very close to the RX 580 which is a rather decent card. Maybe you meant the Xbox One.

          Both of those consoles perform better than you'd think from just the GPU specs, because the CPU and GPU share all of the memory just like an AMD APU design. On the XBox One X instead of low bandwidth DDR-3 it is using much faster GDDR-5. That alone accelerates the entire game loop.

            The last lirc staging driver is ported to mainline, not dropped A lot of effort went into that, thanks! :-)

            For anyone interested in the detailed changes for rc-core, see this:

              Actually these are one of the cheapest DVB-T2 tuners you can get, they're regularly under £8 new on ebay. You can buy cheaper generic Chinese tuners but, until they arrive, it's difficult to know whether the tuner supports DVB-T2 or only DVB-T.

              I bought a couple of these tuners and attached them to a Raspberry Pi running LibreELEC and TVheadend to stream live TV around the house just in case there was anything interesting on over Christmas (there wasn't). Works great.
