post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
does it take an expensive upgrade for this feature?...not too sure where to start looking, I read up on TV tuners, but also read that some cards have it built in? very confused.

Don't get an All-in wonder card, they don't work too well. Probably the best card you can get right now would be an ATI 650, it does over the air HD as well as regular TV using dual tuners, one NTSC and one ATSC. There is one made by Saphire for like 60 bucks on newegg. Here is the link.
