I myself installed a Hauppage-TV pci card..but if I want to upgrade my PC I would have the hassle of removing it.. :. USB more convenient.. & generally there is something to be said for "pluggabe" components .. ie CDRW drives .. storage.etc., for the same reason.IMHO..-

USB1 is not fast enough to give data transfer sufficient to form a reasonable TV picture much larger than a postage stamp.

For reasonable televsion quality at full screen you need a USB2 or Firewire device - or a PCI card.
