Freeview - usb stick or PCI card

  silliw 13:33 14 Jan 2007

I confess that I have tried a number of usb devices to get digital freeview to my pc but non of them have really been up to scratch. I have a good signal down the coax as I currently have a set top box in the same room as my pc but I want to run freeview on the pc so that I can record programmes as the portable tv has no means of recording.
So are the pci cards any more consistent/reliable than the usb sticks???

I had a wintv usb reciever and just changed to a Pinical PCTV Dual DVB-T Pro PCI card.
The PCI card is fantastic it also has a remote control. The picture quality is better than any other TV in the house.
I can also record one chanel when watching another,or record two together.
It works well with the Windows xp media centre and theie programing guide,easy to recrd stuff.
It also has software from Pinical for media centre and video editing.
