Windows 7: Need TV Card Tu Use with Dish network 722 SD

Need TV Card Tu Use with Dish network 722 SD

Looking for a TV Tuner or Capture card to hook up my remote Dish network coax cable and display the video on my computer. Only need to select Ch. 73 as input. Channel changes are done via IR remote on Dish's VP722 box.

Dish VP722 box is dual tuner. Primary HD feed is connected to family TV. Secondary feed is SD and connected to an old TV. Just want to trash old TV and view signal on computer's second monitor. Mainly news so not too worried about quality.

Needs to fit in a PCI X1 slot.

Anyone knows a card that will suit my needs?

Thanks.

This sounds like it fits your qualifications, I can't confirm what will work with dish network because I have cable but it will give you something to start your research with.

Received and installed the Hauppauge 1250 TV Tuner card.

Card worked with drivers provided by manufacturer with Win 7 x64.

I connected the looooong coax cable from my DishNetwork box VP722 to the antenna input connector on tuner card. Then manually set Win7TV to look for channel 73 (different channel for other users), and bam! satellite TV is now displayed on my secondary monitor. Looks great.

Thanks Derekimo for referencing this card.

Does anyone record videos using this Dish service? We've recorded many videos and I really like this feature! I know it costs a bit more, but not as much as buying several DVDs. We actually play the videos many times. I'm not in any way promoting this feature... just asking a question :)
