    I always said I would get one for at least one of my computers, but I never really got around to it. How are they?

    If you live in US here are your instructions.
    1)go to fry's electronics. If one isn't near you then petition somebody.
    2)go to the section where they have the graphics cards/motherboards
    3)I don't know the specific brand but the one I saw was about $70.00. Quality? I bought an io brand mp3player for like$65 that has 64MB built in with a slot for 128MB expansion card. It is small and reliable. Also I got a standalone mp3player for like $60.00 and it has dual lasers(plays dvds,cd-r,cd-rw,music,ect...).
    I hate it when people don't put at least their country in their profile.

    Cheap Haupagge winTV cards are being cleared at $25 to $50 but the TV isn't stereo, only the FM is. They work great though. Just ignore the help pages and encoding advice.

    Any problems will come from the software but there's a lot of workarounds.

    If you really have to have stereo, look to spend $50 to $100 bucks.

    quality is generally ok, its not quite as good as a normal tv i think because the signal boosters aren't as good (I'm talking about a Hauppauge card here, its the only one i've used), but u could always buy a booster as well for an additional $15. PLus with a tv card u can record stuff if u really want.

    My ATI TV Wonder (PCI), with the newest XP software, allows me to make DVD MPEGS to burn onto DVDRs. Crystal clear and easy to use.

    In VCD record mode, I can record up to 5 days of video nonstop! Use my hard drive as "VCR".
