Windows 7: Digital TV Tuner

Digital TV Tuner

I have a Leadtek DTV 1000s and there is a bit of blurring while watching fast action HD TV (I really only watch sport). The picture is really good but not perfect. I'm looking at upgrading the card but first I want to be sure that my expectations are realistic. Should the picture be perfect? I have a good aerial so that's not the problem. What cards do other people have and how is the picture quality? This is my first DTV card so I'm not really that knowledgeable .

Thanks mate, I think I've read enough about them. What I need is someone to tell me what they use and what the quality is like.

I haven't tried a HDTV tuner, but I use an SD one (Hauppauge Nova-T) and the quality of the image on that isn't as good quality in Windows Media Centre as what it is if I was watching it on a normal TV.

Maybe my expectations are too high. The card I have is a cheap one and I bought it just to see what it was like. I don't want to waste money on an upgrade if the quality won't improve. Having said that tho, if it would improve quality then I'll buy the best one I can get.
