Just to add, from experience i've found reception quality a big issue with bunny ears, perhaps consider hooking up to the roof antenna :)

if you have xp media centre edition or vista you in theory dont need additional software, however most cards come with software in a cd or downloadable. hauppauge is a good brand (well the only brand i'm familiar with).

At the risk of conflict with the geek inside me... but use the right tools for the job. IMO, use a tv to watch tv (despite my media centre and 5 computers at home)
