TV Card help please - aerial socket required?

I'm speciing a PC from click here

Can anyone give me info on TV cards & Digital TV cards. The website explains these, but.... I still have to make a connection from the computer to an aerial socket for either method?

Would like to add this to my build, but PC is nowhere near an aerial socket.

Also - if I get a TV card, would I need XP Media rather than XP Home?

Yes you will need to plug some form of aerial into the PC in order to get a TV signal.

No you will not need Media XP Home will be fine.
