  1. Im looking to add tv to my computer. I have an available PCI and PCI e x16 and x1 slots free but the x16 is the lower slot while I have a 8800 ultra in the top x16 slot. I want to be able to record and watch live tv on my computer, is there a way to do this without a cable connection in my room? I've heard of sling but I don't fully understand its capabilities. I do have 2 he DVR boxes near me bit I'd like to keep the recordings on my pc.

    What you need

    You need a (PVR) PCI card. (Personal Video Recorder)

    You need to be paying for a cable TV server to connect to it.

    Not only PVR cards, but any PVR / Tuner cards.

    I cooked up the Newegg and Tigerdirect for you. Here's your hits.

    You can use any of these cards in PCI-E 1X:


    I suggest you to go to any Tigerdirect's items, because that they only provide many choices.

    There is so many PVR / Tuner card out there, so this is for a starts :)

    And Mindless Zombie, next time, please don't tell them what product to use. Instead, give them the choice like I did.

    By the way, Leaktek was all right, Any products can beat Leaktek at any time.
