Here is a guide to pc tunerhttp://www.hdtvtunerinfo.com/
It will provid details including what TV standard/format it supports (NTSC/SECAM,,etc)
I had hauppage 2250 MCE since it first came out(~ 2008). It functions as my DVR, PVR... It records pretty good. The recording is limited by your HD. I have a 2Gbyte drive just for that function.
It works well w/ Windows Media Center. The software that came with it WinTV7 is also runs well.
