You haven't included the "stuff below"..:-)

I use a Twinhan Freeview PCI DTB-ter D+A (Digital plus Analogue) TV card with Twinhan's own BDA drivers and software (it was originally issued with PowerCinema which was, to put it kindly, not much use); it can also be used with the same drivers and ShowShifter.

I pick up all the 90+ TV and radio channels from Winter Hill on the card which can also be used in PVR form; you can also connect a VCR, games console etc and record the inputs.

However, the card I have (model 3054) seems to be getting scarce these days and appears to have been replaced by the 3056, which is not quite as versatile.

Single or multi tuners, PCI or USB. Very reliable and fully supported. I have used a two tuner setup for several months and thoroughly recommend them.

It will capture analogue from a VCR.
