    yeah... the 'all-in-wonder' is probably plenty.

    here's a link to a canadian company with good mail order and specs.

    THIS seems like a decent priced TV input

    HERE is another decent one.

    What he said.

    All-In-Wonder is fine, if not the best all-in-one solution out there.

    Obviously you already have a video card, so you could just get a TV Tuner card (PCI interface) and add that in to your system instead of buying a whole new video card.

    Check out the ATI TV Wonder, Hauppage WinTV, and Pinnacle TV cards, amongst others.

    I agree with the all in wonder. Do you do any 3d gaming? If not one of the PCI solutions mentioned might be fine, I'm not really sure if you're looking to upgrade any other aspect of your video card or not, though.

    I just got an ATI 9800 Pro and I couldn't be happier with a video card. You can get it with a TV option. Expensive card, but it's pretty high-end.
