    Hi folks could any one give us some advice or point me at some.

    Looking at using a PC to replace my old VCR and save the TV to the hard drive and stuff.

    Been looking at TV tuner cards in particular the Hauppauge Win PVR350 read that the software that comes with it is a bit pants but I hear there are quite a few better things about. Is this a good idea or are there better tools for the job?


    Also look at changing the case of the PC so it looks at bit better than the beige and blue of an IBM NetVista any one know if I could fit the bits in something else.
    Cheers in advance if anyone can help

    For a TV card get a Nebula DigiTV Freeview card. It comes with some excellent PVR software, works well as a freeview reciever and can stream TV over a network if you want to do that sort of thing?

    Cheers
