Cheap TV Cards

Am looking for a cheap TV card to whack in my PC so I can watch some telly whilst using the TV to play console games on. I am currently thinking about a Hauppauge WinTV Go card - have seen them for 30 quid. Has anyone used one or got any other recommendations?

I currently have Sky sent through a phillips video sender thingy (http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10001&langId=-1&catalogId=1751&productId=94740) that I have plugged into my sky box in the front room and it sends whatever is being watched in there to my box in my office. It only has a scart output and I was wondering if there is a way to connect this to the TV card?

Any help would be appreciated.

I use one of these on my second PC and it works fine for such a cheap card. It only has an arial socket which I use and a video composite input so not really the best for sky. Picture is good though but I think you need somthing with a little more connectivity. S-video at least if your STB has it.

Lots of scart to whatever converters around... try maplins

Hello Kronenbourg I was in Aldi the other day and picked up a Tevion tv card to get my old camcorder tapes on, It cost £29.99
on the box the features are- 125 channels-capture tv and vidio as mpeg4, 2 &1 - time shifting to record & playback tv at same time - capture still image in bmp & jpeg- remote controller- pip playback- teletext. Spec is vidio input coaxial - fm input - svidio -audio to speaker - av in . Have not had a lot of time ( kids ) but the camcorder works sweet. good luck
