With a TV card, can you record what is coming through the card? If so, what could I record with? Any particular program?

Getting a good one will usually also get the software that you need so check out the software packages that come with them as your bound to find one that will suit your purpose. ;)

I'd go with an ATI TV Wonder or an MSI [email protected]

Actually, just get the MSI....

Done. I bought it through NewEgg.com and since I order from them frequently, I should get it Thursday or Friday.

I've heard some bad things about the ATI one so I'm glad I went with the MSI choice, there aren't too many TV Tuner cards that I have seen.

I'm trying to look for a PCI card that can do USB 2.0 and Firewire for my next purchase, any suggestions on that?

Ya, I want the MSI [email protected] too, but I'll get an NV30 first...As for the USB 2.0 & Firewire, I have both onboard....but...
Here's a good one from Belkin (http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Merchant_Id=&Section_Id=200433&pcount=&Product_Id=125578&Section.Section_Path=%2F%2FRoot%2FUSB%2FUSB20%2F) for starters...I'm sure there are lots of others...

Do you still need a PCI card with that ? How does it connect ?

At first I was asking the same thing but then found out you do need a PCI card as well.
