Hi, i know ive posted a thread about this a while ago but still searching,
All i need is freeview, i dont really want to record and i dont want crappy analogue. What are my best choices? Ive got a dell 2405 with S-video component and compsite inputs im not sure what to do, go external and get a better PQ or have everything in one box with MCE 2005?
Any pointers?
Thanks
Chris

Sweetspot MCE or Blackgold (same thing different name) PCI card.
They've been around ages have reliable stable drivers - and I've not heard a bad thing said about them. /wish I could say the same about the Terratec 2400iDT.

Hauppauge Win-NovaT is also a popular choice.

I just bought aLeadtek card and had no problems so far... with MCE I just installed the drivers rather than all the software the cards usually come with. Got a very clean install using MCE as the front end. See here for details. I looked at the Blackgold etc... but plumped for the Leadtek, on price / pass through for aerial / functions and MCE2005 compliancy.

Also, the Hauppauge Nova-T's are now around £40 from Ebuyer.
