Well, I was asking enough questions in Grant's thread that I thought it wise to effectively start my own thread, and build on my own requirements. Suppose I wanted to use a PC as a PVR and also edit and archive programs to VCD and/or DVD (for personal use, of course)? Any recommendations in the TV Tuner card area for this purpose? While I'm not out to spend a fortune, I would like to achieve quality. Also, would there be any benefit in outputting the recorded video to either the Pinnacle DV200/DV500 or other such solutions? That is, should I want to burn to DVD, would a quality tuner card do a good enough job?
