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.
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?
