TV Card for use with Telewest Cable TV

  bliksem 22:32 16 Apr 2005

Hi all,

Which TV card do you recommend for connecting Telewest Digital cable to my pc so that I can make my pc into a PVR?

Hi, I use the Hauppage WinTV Go, it is a cheap card and I do not have cable, I use Normal Arial;
but in the tuning setup it does give the option for Cable as well as terrestial etc. So would probably work, but not 100% sure.

But this might 'pull' others in to give their advice too.

Well at least, it has 'roped-in' Fruit Bat /\0/to assist - and he is much better at this than I am.

Cheers. :-))

If you go to click here you'll find satellite/cable versions of the Twinhan TV cards (internal and external IIRC).

I use the Twinhan VisionPlus Digital ter Freeview PCI card (£53 including delivery) which is excellent.
