tv tuners and smart tv

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok so im buying a tv with smart tv so i will set up an access point and will be able to stream content from my windows 7 custom pc.
Im thinking maybe i could get a tv tuner card to record from my pc because a freeview recorder is 80 quid minimum and a hd one is even more.

So id like to ask, what card should i get ? (if you could link me to amazon or play id be thankful)

How are they setup? do they have a install cd. I know you use w media center when it is setup

What file format do they record in?

and is there anything else i should know, either warnings or expert tips or whatever.


All these questions make me sound like a dumbass but once i know what im dealing with ill be fine i built the rest of the computer easily afterall :-)

And thank in advance to any replys...thumb.gif

You should post it in HTPC section, wrong place to ask about TV tuner at AMD section.

Where do you live? What are you watching (cable or TV antenna)?
