I'm looking for a cheap TV Card, can anyone suggest one. I don't want to spend more than £40-ish, i want a reputable brand, and i want to be able to connect a external VCR up to it. I have been looking at a Pinnacle one and a Hauppuage one, but they aren't clear on whether you can attach a VCR to it.

The results obtained from these things are seldom satisfactory. Save your money and put it towards a real television set.

really? why are they so bad, they claim that they do not put any pressure on the computer and work just fine? It is for my sister who is at uni, she won't want a TV and a computer?

for instance jordan_richard_barnard. If you use the search facility at the top of the page, type tv in one key word box and video in the other, select all postings and threads you will find dozens of threads on the subject.

hope this helps....Cheers Lixdexik
