    @ steelwin.
    Whts the purpose of buying tv Vunner card..
    I mean do u need for professional puropess or just for watching Tv on ur Pc n recording them at good quality..
    If u need for professional puposes go for wht shri007 suggested.
    o relse for home puposes go for media center one frm pinnacle..
    @ 2500 pinnacle PCTV 100i is good...
    My frnd hav one n its stunning.. also recording videos is gud, but for tht u need a good rig say abt having more than 512 ( 1gb recommended) ram n good processor...

    @ymhatre:having 512 MB or 1 gig of RAM is not a necessity,256 MB will do just fine.What u do need is a fast proccy and a fast hard disk

    Brat i have tested this...
    Even though pinnacle suggest tht 256 is recomended..
    but capturing videos or pausing live Tv... needs good ram..
    I do agree with u tht it needs an good HDD
    but 2day everyone almost have an HDD of &200 Rpm withlots of space..
