    Mediacenter requires tuner cards with hardware encoder.
    Try Hauppauge PVR-150MCE.

    mod-the-pc is right. buy tv tuner card which has built in hardware encoder. cheap tv tuner card have software encoder which give that heavy work to cpu. software encoder generally give poor picture quality and has problem of frame dropping.
    compro VideoMate TVPVR/FM was best buy in some issue of DIGIT. at that time it was selling at Rs 2250 on sify shopping. please check that it has hardware encoder or not?

    Why do I find a few people giving irrelevant answers to posts?

    This thread was opened by Anirudh for a TV Tuner card..
    And I find Sam giving gyan about Piracy............
    Chillout Dude, and please allow the thread opener to get his options........

    I recommend you go for the Pinnacle or Compro Videomate....

    These are the best.........

    @digiFriend the Compro VideoMate PVR/FM does not have a hardware encoder chip onboard.
