Re: Need El Cheapo DVR suggestions

said by dogma:

Is there a [cheap] PCI card that has both a DTV tuner COAX input as well as a COAX/HDMI output?

Tuner card is separate from output. You just need a computer with the proper DVI / HDMI output for your monitor (TV) for the output. Tuner card is input only.

Don't try to do this without Windows 7. That's when it started working really well.

Why do you say that? Every HTPC I've ever had/do have runs XP. 7 suffers from too much bloat to do HD effectively on older hardware.

Say what?? I highly recommend W7 because of the Microsoft built-in decoders make playback so much better...
