I'm using windows 7,And thinking of getting a tv card so I can make use of the windows media centre.Now once I have fully installed the card and updated the tv stations etc,If I record a program from the pc via wmc can I then copy that program by using the windows movie maker to a dvd disc and wath it on a dvd player. Finally what bwould be the best option of a tv card to purchase,& the best place. thanks,c.

I have a Hauppauge in my PC, you will need a feed from a TV aerial. As regards supplier try Amazon.

I bought TBS6921 DVB-S2 TV Tuner Card at and it works fine with Win 7 media center.

USB TV Tuner is easier to installed.

Which ever TV tuner you decide on more than likely you will need an aerial as now it is not worth buying an analogue tuner.

Hi, I see a lot of people recommending Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 Dual TV Tuner. Personally, I use the AVerMedia AVerTV Combo PCIe ATSC/NTSC/QAM TV Tuner Card and it is working fine.

An alernative solution is TV Catchup (Missnamed). You can D/L most of the Freeview channels on an internet connection. My D/L speed is only about 1.7Gb/sec and I rarely get buffering problems.
