Ok the tuner card was exactly what I was looking for, I'd prefer it over an all-in-wonder. I'm not sure how a more expensive card offers that much more, I don't need a remote or anything- as long as it can convert tv signals to something I can watch, even with my radeon 7500 I can get nearly dvd quality videos playing.
Also, say I have this card- right now if I plug the cable line to my tv I get basic cable (the lines are hot since I live in a house with shared cable setup, ie someone is paying for the line- but I can mooch it). Is it as simple as install the card, plug the cable in, and load the program- instant tv?
Btw, any reviews on any of these cards? The ratings seem rather inadequate.
