What would be the best TV Card for Vista --> below $120.

Do they differ much as far as getting a good reception (i.e. are the more expensive cards better at it)?

Does the sky decoder software still work with Vista (from memory its the BT8X chip is needed?).

Cheers.

Depends on what function you want :) !
And just make sure you get assurance of money back if it doesnt work because i know Hauppauge ones (the most popular ones according to me) have problems even though they're meant to work.

Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

We put the Hauppauge PVR 150MCE in our Vista systems and it works really well.

Ditto.  I've got the PVR 150MCE in my media center running Vista Home Premium and it works sweet.
