    I think I'm close but need a final push before I buy!

    I need: DVB & analogue, text, free EPG
    Would like: rec one ch. & view another, MCE-type on-screen settings (rather than mouse/kybd)
    1. Does anyone know the difference between Pinnacle's 300i & 310i (apart from approx £15)?
    2. I expect to have to get a full-size motherboard anyway (AMD 64 Ath) - any comments?!
    3. Should I steer clear of all/any of: Pinnacle, Twinhan or ASUS?
    4. Any clear winner here or alternatives?

    Go on, it's not your money!
    Cheers
    Richard

    Are you using XP or XP MCE, this has an impact on availability of drivers?

    I have a Twinham DTV PCI card, only DVB-T, works really well, does not do teletext (not DVB-T teletext). The Software updates are pretty slow, and XP MCE users do not seem to like Twinham.

    I think they now have a new combined FM/Analogue/DVB-T tuner.

    The on-screen application is OK, PQ excellent, recording easily via EPG, but I prefer my ATI All-in-Wonder analogue TV application. The ATI's through window display is cool........or am I a sucker for glimicks.
