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.
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.
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
