Hello, I am wondering if anyone can sugest a good TV tuner card for a HTPC. I want to be able to record tv shows and watch another channel at the same time and i assume that requires a dual tuner card. any suggestions?
That's going to depend on your budget, system configuration, and your video source. For instance, if you're a cable/satellite TV subscriber and have more than just basic cable (that requires a set top box), then I'd recommend one of the new cablecard solutions.
If you just have basic cable (no set top box required) or over the air transmissions, then (as rwpritchett states while I type this up), just a simple dual TV Tuner card like the AVerMedia A188 or any of the Hauppauge dual tuner devices.
