TV Tuner & Windows MCE

by jefrey13 / November 9, 2005 8:34 PM PST

I've recently purchased a Gateway GT5012 Media PC, with an Intel Pentuim D 2.8 GHz CPU, 1GB RAM and Windows MCE 2005 OS. I've installed an ATI X700 Pro video card. It did not come with a TV tuner card. What is my best option for a TV tuner? Don't need one with any FM, just my cable in.

Do you want it to be HDTV ready? Do you want the ability to decode the 5.1 audio that is matrixed into some broadcasts? Are you looking for JUST a TV tuner, or would you like to be able to record programs as well? I'm sure that system set you back a ways, so how much are you looking to spend?

Yes, to the HDTV and 5.1 possibilites, for the future, but not right now. Windows Media Center will allow me to record programs, so I don't need any DVR optoins, unless they help to decrease CPU usage.
