Since I had only made 4 posts before the previous one, I was restricted from including URLs. Here are URLs that pertain to my previous post: USB/PCI HD Tuners: http://www.dvico.com Article on HD Inverse Telecine for 7600GS and 7600GT http://www.firingsquad.com/news/view...=1&orig_pnum=6
ManC - you can get an ATSC (HD) tuner that connects to your computer via USB or an internal PCI one. I finally found fairly definitive info on my quest to decide between the 7600GS and GT. It seems the GT is the way to go to take proper advantage of HD broadcasts. Apparently, the GS would be just fine for BlueRay and HD DVD since that content will be properly flagged so flag-based detection will suffice and HD inverse telecine is unnecessary.

If it becomes possible to watch HD DVDs via the computer, I'd consider that as well. Should I just get the cheaper 7600GS, or would I be...
Greetings. I am new to HDTV and am trying to figure out how I can most easily experience HD content at a low cost. I would like to get PBS, the local networks, perhaps ESPN - but I don't need premium channels.
