You can use direct TV if you want, you just run it through a single channel and use the box to change channels like on a regular tv.

You can use it to watch tv on your pc as well, recording or not, your call.

Hauppauge and Ati make some of the best tv tuners.

USB means you can use with anything, including notebooks.

PCI typically has more features at cheaper price.

Your call.


Debiant by way of Ubuntu
Sazars right - if you want some personal detailed opinions from a UK user - I have Winfast PCI cards (two off) and Haupage USB....

Get back with your needs and any further info you may need... Because what you plan on doing with it affects useage and choice (EG if recording TV in any quantity you'll need plenty HD space....)

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
