    Hauppauge PVR150.

    Both the MCE/non MCE branded versions will work as long as you use the MCE driver.

    You need to get a signal from your Sky box to the PVR card. Use a normal (rf) aerial cable to run between the two. You then need to get a signal from your graphics card to your TV/monitor. This will depend on what inputs your TV has and what outputs your graphics card has - you might need some sort of adpater. Good luck.

    As above, but s-video may be preferable to connect your sky box to the pc, better than rf.
