    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. [​IMG]
    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?

    If you have the option to, take a look at the newly released ATI Radeon 8500DV. Built-in tuner, does PVR, video capture, video output, hardware DVD decoding, ac-3 output etc.
