    I'll transfer this over to hardware, because that's what you need, a card with a tv tuner on it.

    The card I have is a ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon w/ 32mb DDR. For the most part I'm pretty happy with it. It's still a little spendy at around $200, but for a combination video graphics accelorator and tv tuner card it's not bad.

    Hopefully some others will jump in and name there favorite tv tuner card and give you a link to help you research it.

    Best card for the money

    I have an IO-Magic PC-PVR card. Its a TV tuner card. Does pause live, instant replay, and VCR functions. For $39 at CompUsa it was a serious bargain. Its a PCI card.


    The next ONLY product that also does the pause live, resume, instant replay stuff (timeshifting) is the Personal Cinema from Nvidia.

    I'm debating getting a GForce3 with personal cinema OR getting a GForce2 PCI card with personal cinema AND a GForce3Ti500 for the AGP slot. Make use of a second monitor for the TV functions as wel as making my desktop bigger witht he second monitor.
