Right, I'm just getting everything sorted for uni and instead of getting a TV liscence I'm considering just getting a TV card as I've heard these can't be traced by the TV blokey's equipment and would work out cheaper.
An internal card would be preferable so it's not obvious and it'd be handy if I could record onto my hard drive, I've seen ones which encode in mpeg 2, are there any that will do it in mpeg 4 or divx? Also one of the digital cards with freeview channels may be worth a look into, but am I likely to need a new ariel to get a decent reception? (I'll be in edinburgh city centre). Also are those ones which can pause TV any good?
Would it also be possible to put the sound output from these cards through my audigy 2 so I can digital output to my amp? I'd also be playing through a DVI connection to my samsung 171p.
Any advice or links to decent cards would be appretiated
