    What's the best internal one out there. Must be able to pause/rewind/record live TV, etc.

    Forget about price at the moment!

    Thanks very much/...

    Black Gold and Nebula have good reputations - do you want to use it for MCE?

    Yeah figured MCE out just after posting!

    Nope not worried about it then... got an x64 dual core processor so have Windows XP Pro x64 Edition.

    The Nebula one looks impressive, especially the LAN streaming and remote access options.

    Where's a good place to get one of these?

    Thanks again/...

    Thanks for that!

    Forgot to include one thing... can the Nebula card record one programme while watching another?

    If not, can I stick 2 cards in and do this? Will I need 2 aerial feeds to do this, or would it be better to get one of these...

    Thanks again?
