For those with PC TV capture cards...

I got my Tivo but am also want to use my computer to capture TV also. What are good cards/programs to use.

I read the All-in-wonder cards are Ok but not great (seems alot of people had compatibility/freezing issues).

just want a basic one and not really interested in gaming capabilities and such, just one that will record some programs for online viewing later.

I've been using the all in wonder radian (sp?) for a couple of years now ... using windows 98 it was a little bit of a pain getting the right drivers but with 2k it was pretty straight forward.

I don't know how the current model fares.

The tivo and video capture on your computer are a nice setup .. I use it all the time.

The card seems to work ok but I have had issues with the drivers. I agree that finding the driver version that work best is a bit of a pain. Trust me there are other very nice hardware with worse issues software-wise.

You may wish to take a look at the Hauppage 350.

I had a Pinnacle TV capture card for a couple of years and it worked okay. There is a tendancy to lock up especially if your IRQ's aren't set right. Windows XP does a good job of keeping them apart. If I were you I'd just use TiVO.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

The Nvidia Personal Cinema card is ok. The real upside is it is cheap. It is a Geforce 4 MX-440 card with a TV tuner thats it. The all-in-wonder is really geat but pricey. Check out the Nvidia card price and that may sell ya.

I have a couple All-in-wonder cards. They are nice, but probably not worth the price. The next TV card I would get is this:

You will find that for the money this is the best card. Otherwise go with a Hauppauge PVR Card for around $200.
