You should surely go in for one.  I think it is quite a bargain.
Regarding my setup, actually this VDOmate card is not exactly
Avermedia's.  There is no mention of this card on avermedia's web
site.  I can use this card to watch S-video output from my handicam,
but I'm still not able to see TV in it.

I searched for win2000 drivers for this card.  And guess what, all
links pointed to message boards in device driver forum web sites.  All
postees were Indians who could not find win2000 drivers for vdomate
card :)  And there was'nt a single reply which contained the drivers.

So, there's really no hope for this silly card for me.  I guess I'll
rush to Nehru Place, and plead with the shopkeeper to change it to a
PixelView one for few extra bucks (though it's around 5 months since I
bought it).

PS: regarding the remote: It works really fine through lirc
 (http://www.lirc.org).  Since most stuff in Linux can be controlled
 through command line, the possibilities are endless.  I'm currently
 using my computer and remote as a great MP3 player.  I have
 configured my remote to do next/prev song, +/- Volume, and play and
 stop.  I'm using gqmpeg as my mp3 player, but I think even xmms is
 fully controllable via command line.
