Sorry if I ask, but are you sure that this card has a "video in" feature rather than a standard tv-output ? It seems strange for a PCI-card

No, the card does not have VIVO (Video In Video Out) ... I don't think there's any PCI cards with that feature save for the few ATI All-In-Wonder PCI cards...

Well, are you talking about just PCI GPUs? Because Hauppauge and MANY others make PVR cards...

that didn't answer my question though. Just PCI GPUs or do you have an AGP video card and were looking for a second video card for TV-in? Because as I said, Haupppauge makes really good cards and perhaps their best card, the WinTV PVR-250, is only $80 after $50MIR this week at Circuit City

okay, now I gotcha.

Get an All-in-Wonder then since just a PVR won't do anything for you other than record TV shows...you won't have a monitor to watch them on.
