    Greetings all. This is my first real posting here.

    I'm building a new Media Center PC (primarily as a PVR, and as a driver for my XBox 360's Media Extender capabilities) and need some advice on tuners.

    My requirements:

    1) I have a Freeview antenna set up at home which I want to use (no set-top box)
    2) I want to record my old home movies (VHS and S-VHS) onto my PC
    3) I want to be able to view one channel and record another at the same time.
    4) I may be getting Sky, cable or satellite sometime soon and would like to be able to record that too, if possible
    5) I have two spare PCI slots
    6) The cards should work well inside and outside the Media Center app itself; it would be nice to get some good software with the card
    7) I know MCE doesn't support digital teletext etc yet, but it would be nice to have a card that supported this too
    8) I want the best performing card, with the least problems - I would rather pay a bit more than scrimp

    What should I be getting? Am I asking the impossible?
    Thanks in advance for all your help.
