What PCI card is recommended?

by harleygeek / February 25, 2012 2:27 PM PST

I have a Dell Inspiron 530S, and I want to install a TV tuner. What is the recommended PCI card I need for it? I have a Playstation console that I would like to connect to the computer, which needs the TV tuner. I've tried searching for this answer, but haven't been coming up with anything. helpful. My brother gave me one, but I guess it didn't work because the card was too big for the slot. Thanks for any assistance here!

The PCI cards might have more options than the USB. I have the USB for my laptop. They will come with software to capture audio and video.
