KWORLD PlusTV Analog Lite PCI TV Tuner
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16815260017

$14.99 - $14.99 MIR = $0 + Shipping.

This is an analog-only tuner. After February 17, 2009, it will no longer work for over-the-air TV without a digital converter box. However, it will work and continue to work fine with cable or satellite input.

Not without the cable box.

I hate to put a thorn in the side of this deal, but I have one, and under Vista 64, at least, it barely works.

If your current television is not digital, it will work the same way as an analog tv, requiring the box.

BTW, does Canada have a date for digital broadcasting to be required?

they mean you wont get digital TV without a cable box. the Whole DTV thing has to do with over the air broadcasts.

Your digital cable box converts a digital signal to analogue which the tuner card accepts.

Pros: Nothing really, Like any other, Not that great software, TV picture looks better
Cons: You Won't get the rebate trust me I tried too many to get any rebate from Kworld never did.
Maybe not such a great buy if you don't get the rebate, although you never know.

Trust me, its not worth it. And I payed twice as much. Unless you consider the ability to turn on your computer with a remote is worth $15 + shipping...
