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).

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
