    FYI Freeview HD cards/tuners are only just coming on the market, and you should expect to pay £70-£115 for one, depening on your needs. Some are single tuner USB sticks/breakout boxes, others are dual tuner and PCI-E.

    The only one readily available on the market is the PCTV USB stick, see this thread: http://forums.hexus.net/lifestyle-ne...ml#post1976531
