    Hi. Not sure if this is the right place to post this (if not can somebody tell me where pls!). Im looking for a decent digital tv tuner for my pc. I think an external box with usb 2.0 connection would be best, with its own power supply. This is to give me the option of having the pc off if Im only watching tv, and switched on if Im recording to my hard drive. I would like a digital audio out and scart or component or dvi out. Any ideas??

    Essentially what you're asking for is a digi-box with VGA/DVI output with USB 2.0 (or even ethernet) - I think if they existed we'd all be buying them. High quality outputs and the ability to record to a PC hard drive, which these days could be in TBs.

    don't know about a usb one but Haupaugge do a pci DVB-T tuner which will allow you to capture decent off-air video. I wouldn't use their software though as its a little poor, to put it politely.

    I recommend the one from here http://www.nebula-electronics.com/ It works really well, has an ongoing software development programme, and the support is excellent. I've had the PCI one for a couple of years, they do a USB one as well.
