Do you want internal? If you dont care I just got a Hauppauge usb HDTV tuner and man is it wonderfull I now get and record HDTV and the picture and recordings are beautiful. I was going to get a All in Wonder HD from Ati but I dont need it. If I had the space to host one of my recordings I would post it so you can download it. I may make a small recording so you can see the results.

I don't care if it's internal or external, just the best quality and features.

Hauppauge == best quality AND features typically.

So I have heard. I was expecting more of a certain one, a version that everyone says is #1 or a version that everyone has heard of. Which do you recommend?

depends on many things, what you want from it, what format (pci usb) and budget

1. I need it to be the higest possible HD quality in Sound & Video
2. It being a USB would be nice, but not needed.
3. Able to record HDTV as well as watch.
4. If possible, watch Cable and Satellite TV at the same time.

Price, well under $150 would be nice, but I can go higher then that.

This tuner seems to have a lot of connections and features, but is quite cheap...

My two cents, I'd go with one internal cards with hard dvr as opposed to soft dvr (hardware on card for encoding).

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
