have a Windows Media Center Edition PC, but want to use your computer as
a PVR? There are plenty of options to do this and ADS Tech just added
another one; with HDTV support no less! $129 list gets you a PCI-based HDTV tuner
for your Windows XP machine. Bundled with the tuner card is SnapStream's
Beyond TV which provides an electronic program guide (EPG) and hard-drive recording capabilities.
Once you pop this card in a free PCI slot and install the drivers, you
just add an antenna for any free over-the-air (OTA) HDTV signals. You
can also tune in and record analog television and cable, but not
encrypted or digital cable. NeroVision Express
software is also included which provides you the ability to move your
television content from the hard-drive to a DVD if you've got a burner.
The remote control is a nice touch too!
