After a few months of using a Geforce2 Ultra based HTPC, i've decided to retire that pc to gaming-only status, and go Radeon (based on what I've read here repeatedly). I have a calibrated G-11 and will use the new radeon htpc for dvds, as a pesonal video recorder and for audio cds (through a lex mc-1 and all Legacy Audio speaker system.) I've narrowed my htpc choices to the AVS Pentium 4 elite or the Digital Connection DC Marquee. I want the best audio and video available today, and the best hd/capture card. The AVS htpc uses the Happauge and the DC uses the Access. What are the differences in the two? Will I be able to loop my DTC-100 through either of them and record Direct TV? Will either of the two improve the picture of a S-VCR or NTSC signal? Is there any appreciable sound difference between the Delta DiO sound card and the 24/96? Is there anything out there better than these two sound cards for music?
thanks for your help...

Hi mfrizzz,

There are several current threads that are covering the issues you seem to be interested in. Please read these threads and I think much of what you're interested in will have already have been discussed.
