tv tuner card or something else?

Hello, just wanted to record basic over the air channels via RG6 onto my PC and wanted something simple, inexpensive and friendly based with Windows 7. Would be used like a DVR. Any suggestions?

You need a tuner to receive the stations. One like this Hauppauge Computer Works : WinTV-HVR-950Q Product Description is very simple. You can look at the other offerings by Hauppauge too, like PCI-E cards. Hauppauge makes very reliable tuners.

The Hauppage tuners come with WinTV software. This is very basic software needed to watch and record TV. It might be all you need.

You could also use Windows Media Center to Watch and record. Just be sure to choose a tuner that is recommended for use with WMC.
