Default Best TV tuner &/or video recording software to use w/ nVidia?

I'm running a P4 HT 3 GHz, Intel D865PERL mobo, 1 GB Ram, BFG 6600 GT OC
w/ 128 MB video memory, Win XP home. The card does have VIVO, but no TV
tuner. Has anyone else with a similar setup found a good TV tuner card
&/or video recording software (to get the computer working like "TIVO")
that work well with this card?

Sorry, that's a Gainward 6600 GT, 128 MB, with VIVO.

There is nothing to compare with the Nebula DigiTV PCI card in my
opinion. Google up Nebula digiTV and see what it offers ! I woulden't
use anything else. Records in the broadcast compression, which takes
about 2GB/hour only (mpg2). You can also record the entire stream which
will include several channels, and on playback one of the channels can
be selected. Etc etc.

There's a new Nvidia dual TV tuner card ( hardware compression ) coming out
on the 15th of October called the DualTV, which allegedly offers better
compression than anything else out there taking just 1 GB per hour and once
again allegedly offering the same quality as a 2 GB recording.

I just got a Hauppauge PVR-150 with Beyond TV. It's got to be an
ultimate combo. Basically turns your PC into a Tivo. You can also
schedule recordings from your personal Beyond TV site while away from
your PC. Hardware encoding, so no processing power is lost by your
CPU. MPEG2 compression and can be changed from 1GB-3GB per hour video
quality. Also accepts S-Video and Composite in. Great card and even
better software.

Hmm, check out the Nebula card/software and see if the Hauppage really
is comparable.
