wasnt too sure where to post this, so please move as needed.

Im looking for a good, cheap TV Tuner for my PC.

firstly, are the USB tuners any good? i see many come with extra aerials that i presume make a big difference, but in general, how do they fair against TV cards?

another reason i looked into a USB one, is because i dont have the main external aerial cable in my room, and as the USB tuners come with their own, its better for me.

so yea, could anyone point me in the right direction for a decent USB TV Tuner? budget of upto £50 i reckon.

Note - Brands and models, not competitors.

cheers!

I'd be interested to know how USB rates against pci/pci-e

The USB & PCI versions of tv tuners are not usually any different in hardware, just a different interface method. It really comes down to personal preference and the number of free PCI slots you have. Personally I'd rather have a PCI card than another piece of hardware to clutter the place up.
