first of all give details like budget,type of connection,monitor etc.if you are going to use usual cable connection then any cheap one will do but quality will be average.if you want high quality(at least dvd resolution) then getting a tv tuner card with component input(not composite input) is must & this is possible only with set top boxes which have component outputs(DTH or digital cable connection).

I dont have much idea about TV Tuner cards.. but the one I owned was from Pinnacle PC TV stereo..
It was quite okay.. not that great
Avermedia produces the best IMO but costly

capture cards with HDMI inputs are quite expensive and over your 2K budget.

i searched on flipkart but couldn't find any tv tuner which has component input.all have s-video input which is better than vcd but slightly worse than dvd resolution.as for hdmi & componet input forget it since cheapest avermedia HD tv tuner card which has hdmi & component input costs 7838.my suggestion is get any cheap avermedia tv tuner costing ~2000.
