probably be better getting a haupage add on card, video cards are outdated very fast, the dedicated tv tuner will offer far more years of service without becoming obsolete.

Yeh, Have used Hauppauge cards for 6-7years, currently basic model is £38.00 in U.K. seem to last indefinitely.

Gotta love them hauppauge cards, watching a film on mine right now, little window in the corner :D

The quality depends on your TV reception, I've found that the quality is slightly lower than when the arial is plugged into my TV set, but with some fine tunning and fiddling, the quality is perfect.
Bear in mind that I have one of the cheapest cards, I'm sure the more pricey one's would give a better quality output :)

yeh there a bargain, considering a tv runs real low resolution like 480x600 ?? and 25fps, theres no point getting the top of the range £200 model just to watch tv.

there imho in the top 2 of tv tuner makers. for £50 u get a remote as well

i have tv out but have a 21" sat on the shelf above my monitor so it aint used, just the tv in on the ti4600 to record stuff,

Geffy, if you get an external USB one, you can move it over to a laptop if you ever get one ;) and just shove it away under the desk when its connected to your desktop :)
