have you googled? what's your card make and model?

Not yet, but I plan on it. I've been real busy the past week or so. I bought an HP USB TV Tuner last summer to use with my laptop when I went off to college. It worked great, but I've transferred to a different school this year and I'm living at home so I won't need it. I figured I'd make this free computer into a PVR to put the tuner to use so it wouldn't be lying around the house collecting dust. I got it to work with a few programs on this computer when I had XP on it.
