I originally bought a Fusion HDTV5 gold card for $150. I now use old Rev. 02 Air2pc cards you can get on ebay for under $20 each if you shop right. I've got 6 of them in my ATSC only system. Get as many of these as your MB will hold for less than the cost of a single one of the ones you are considering. I'd say 3 or 4 as a minimum and you'll never want for something to watch. The most I've had recording at the same time is 5. For what it's worth, I couldn't tell the difference between the quality of these old cards compared to the new ones. They do require you to install a firmare file on your drive, but some others do too. The HDTV5 didn't need one iirc. BTW, that 5th gen LG chip is over 2 years old. It was beaten long ago, but I wouldn't even consider such things unless you are really out a long distance from the towers or might have a multipath problem I get excellent recordings with the old cards at about 42 miles. But they are ATSC only. No qam or ntsc.
