    I'm looking into buying a tv tuner card and i'm looking for a relatively cheap(cost wise) card.

    i'm running a p3 733 with 128ram and a ati rage 128 pro agp video card right now.

    i live in ontario just outside toronto so if anyone knows of any good places to purchase these let me know as well please.

    thanks in advance

    Same here WinTV... Get the Stereo version though, I wish I did...

    Now if I could just find a descrambler...

    is there a really big difference between the winTv go and the stereo model , like i'm just using this tuner to watch sports and stuff while i surf it's not going to be the main set in the house?

    what about Zoltrix TV Genie PRO anyone heard anything about this particular one??

    I have ATI All in Wonder 128 and i would not recommend it.:(

    ATI's software sucks. It has the ugliest design (brown), and i don't get very good quality/size on my captures.

    I haven't tried any other cards, but there must be something better than the ATI cards.

    Anyway, it is really cool with TV on the Computer....:)

    Another vote for WinTV.

    Mine ran really good until it got fried...:D

    I was doing my routine twice-a-year complete cleanout ( taking all the cards out and cleaning them off), when my son started playing with the card and dropped it on the carpet :mad:

    Since then, all my slots have been filled...:D

    But it was a damned good card, and would highly recommend it.
