I want a HPTC\\PVR setup...


I have DirectTV and never use anything other then s-video and the DirectTV receiver as the source.



Does it make sense to get a TV card when all that I seem to need is a H\\W Decoder\\Encoder? What do you all think? What have you done?


Thanks!

Sean

Other here can probably tell you more on this, but if you simply want to manually capture from s-video, then a tuner shouldn't be necessary.


However, if you want to record your programming unattended, then a true PVR (with tuner and capture) might make this alot easier. The new HD tuner/PVR cards will also allow you to do this for OAR HD broadcasts.


I'm not sure how this stuff would work with Direct TV though, maybe someone else here has experience with that.
