Since Media portal has gone digital it thought it is time for me to do the same.
Does anyone have suggestions on a good DVB-C card with card reader and hardware decoding?

Check the Twinhan site, they have a pci version that comes with a card reader. I was looking at dvb-t but I think they had one for dvb-c to.

I don't know if they have any BDA drivers for it though.

Thanks for the tip! It looks like a good, affordable card. But after googling around a bit i found several users that had trouble getting the card to work. No one seemed to get the card reader to work and it had trouble finding channels without really strong signals.
Swedish users can check out these links:

The good thing is that the bda drivers work with the card.

Judging by the source code, 1.20 has DB version 61, and 1.33 has DB version 62. That is, one column has been added: symbolRateMultiplier
