I can't find any information on that model on the Diamond website, the closest I could find is the All in Wonder Graphics with HD TV Tuner.
Please let me know if that's the one, if not, please provide a link to your product page.

I don't think there is a difference, since all those platforms offer plenty of bandwith for this type of application. I see only one benefit from the USB tuners: they are portable, while add-in cards aren't.

Pinnacle PCI Card i800

Does NOT work in Media Center. Will not receive any channels.

It only works under win7 64 using the supplied PCTV software, which is quite buggy.
