Dear friends,

My P.C configuration is as follows:

Motherboard: Intel D845 GVSR
Hard-disk: Seagate 80 GB
Processor: Pentium 4 2.4 GHz
Ram: 512 DDR

According to my P.C configuration, suggest a gr8 T.V tuner card!!!

What about clarity and resolution? I own a 17” L.G Flatron moniotor (E700SH)…. Let me tell about clarity and resolution of the card you suggest.

Moreover, how to convert my P.C into a Media Center One (neglecting the DVD Drive).

Please suggest soon.

agreed.

I too have a PixelView Card. One of the main problems with the card is that the bundled software isn't worth a damn. If you get this card, make sure you use 3rd party software like InterVideo WinDVR.

I think you should buy an external card unless you intend to do some recording. At first, i thought wow! record shows that's gonna be awesome. but i got pretty turned off by the quality of the recording and the size (pixelview's bundled software records in AVI with no compression (?) and results in 100 MB file per minute of recording). So far i have yet to record a single show with my TV card.

better if you buy card from another company.
