In Need of a TV Tuner Card for XP Media PC (eMachines T6520)

by spamforjane / July 11, 2005 1:56 PM PDT

This particular model doesn't have a tv tuner installed, so I'm left to find one that's compatible w/ XP MCE.

Found a great article that compared the different tuner cards out there, and #2 was Hauppauge WinTv PVR-250, and #1 was ATI Wonder Elite.

ANyone have experiences with either of these cards? Where's the best place to purchase them? Is it fairly easy to self-install or should I pay a technician to do it for me?

the Hauppauge cards. I'm not familiar with specific models. Whatever you use, be sure it has a hardware encoder that will allow programs to be recorded in mpeg2 format.

Hopefully someone in Best Buy will steer me to the right one that has the proper...encoder.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
