Hi

I'm currently building an HTPC/Media Server and am having some trouble picking a Tuner. my question is, if I'm ok with keeping the small cable box (just the de-scrambler) from my cable provider, do I still need to get something like this:
http://www.amazon.com/Ceton-InfiniTV-PCIe-4-channel-Cab...

Or would something like this suffice:
http://www.amazon.com/Hauppauge-1196-WinTV-HVR-1250-PCI...

if there is an better alternative, please feel free to make suggestions. I prefer Amazon or Newegg

Thanks!

Also do state what u intend to do - if u merely want to "capture" and record just the one channel at anytime off your STB via component/composite/S-Video you dun need a cablecard tuner (just tune the STB to the channel u wish to record though)
