Do people still do this? Have TV cards in their computer to record and watch live TV? Is there alternative to recording and watching live TV on your computer?




I was thinking about purchasing a hauppauge card as I used one a couple of years ago. I am not sure which one will work in New Zealand and be suitable for what I need it to do.




Does anyone have any recommendations?

If it's DVB-T based TV, then "HD Homerun". It is a network tuner so you can access it from most devices on your network.


Bit pricey but well worth it.

I have a HVR3000 card going spare.  It's a tri-mode hybrid, so DVB-S, DVB-T or analogue.  The analogue you can take it or leave it, hard to get going now days.  But the Satellite or terrestrial sides should still work.  If you're interested make me an offer.

another +1 for the HDHomeRun.


You can use the cheap USB DVB-T tuners (I use them for SDR not TV). Stay away from the older ones with FC00013 tuners, get an R820T2 if you do go this route.
