    usb/pci tv tuners

    quick google doesn't throw up much within the last few years, so:

    -are there any usb or pci tuners that will pick up freesat

    -and has anyone had any experience of any products, good or bad, or any recommendations
    (price i'd be looking at preferably sub 40 quid)

    cheers
