What TV card do you recommend?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Happy New Year fellow overclockers!

I'd like to purchase a REALLY good tv card so that I can record tv/cable programs and shows that I miss while Im out n' about. The thing is...I dont know too much about them. I just know that you can watch tv/cable on your PC with it and record shows straight onto your hard drive.

What would be a GREAT tv card to get that can record in HIGH quality and is very RELIABLE???

Thanks in advance!

ATI TV wonder Elite is a good one. My All-In-Wonder basically has the same thing built into it and the quality is quite nice.
Good enough

Compusa Has It For $119.99 With A $20 Mail-in-rebate

Comes With A Remote, Hookup Box And Cables

The New Theatre 550 Pro Chip Is The Best Around

I Bought One And Would Buy Another Without Question

It Is That Good!
