    Check out PCI TV cards - you may be able to do this depending on the connection. I am in little England and this can be done here.

    I already have an ATI installed. Is that enough?

    Which ATI do you have? You'll need one with a TV turner on it to make this work. I had an All In Wonder ATI Radeon 9700 Pro and it did a fair job of converting the TV signal into a digital stream. The picture always looked pixelated to me.
