    tv card

    simple really....opinions on tv cards please lads/lasses...analogue vs digital and price vs performance....thinking on the lines of a reasonably priced one that gives good picture and performance and possibly digital so as to get free-to-air?...what do I need apart from a card..a good aerial?

    All help is appreciated and I value your opinions.Regards...Gravy

    if you go digital - check your signal at: www.freeview.co.uk first.

    There is only one decent Freeview card on the market at present and its the Nebula Digital TV Card. superb support and software interface. bit pricey though.

    http://www.nebula-electronics.com

    From experience the rest have really crappy software bundled with them and are prone to crashing occasionally.

    MCE - Windows Media Centre Edition 2005.

    Just a windows designed to work better as a "media system" and it does actually work a lot better than windows with my Nova-T card.

    It grabs the TV listings from the internet every sunday and then I can set the recorder to record a whole array of shows and plan in advance what I want to record and view later.
