TV Card

I wanna get a tv card for my pc mainly for recording tv. I heard it's better with windows media center so I'll switch to that if it's easier. I also read most tv cards output only stereo sound, so 5.1 surround sound would be required too, know any good ones?

MCE is not something you can use on a normal desktop system, so you won't be switching to that. If you mainly want to record tv I would get the cheapest hardware encoding card you can find and then run sagetv as a service to do all your recordings and such in the background.

you want your tv card to have 5.1???????? Analog TV is stereo, sometimes only mono. If you want 5.1, your going to have to get a DTV or HDTV capture card.

Why cant you use MCE on a normal desktop? as long as you get your hands on the software it should work. You wont have all that fancy features like remotes and shit that come on the MCE retail systems. but you can still the MC software
