Hey guys, my buddy has a tuner card that works percetly with his digital cable, and it has PVR capabilities, so I am looking to buy it, but when I search it up on newegg, I get 3 results for the exact same card.
I dont know much about tuner cards, so I was wondering if you guys could take a quick look at the 3 and let me know which is the best? I dont need FM tuner, so thats not a big deal, I would like to have 2 tuners, but I dont know what any of the other differences are?
One quick question for you, What OS do you have? WinTV cards have some issues running 64-bit windows with more then 4 gigs of memory.

Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1600 ATSC/ClearQAM/NTSC TV Tuner White Box 1101WB PCI Interface - Retail
Just a card no accessories. This is not recommended as without an IR blaster, it can not change channels on the set top Cable/Satellite box. A review confirms that there is NO IR BLASTER with this card
