I want an ATI card ... I guess under the Diamond name would be my preference, just have to figure out what model. Too bad none of them are dual tuners.

And john ... I'm confused by you calling my comment untrue, you aren't even talking about the same build! I just did a reinstall of 6936 and media center still crashes on trying to open it,

I own one its Unreal for 107.99 at

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi all

the Hauppage Win TV devices (both USB and internal cards) work just fine with W7 Media centre (Terrestial TV Digital UK / Europe).

Even some of the Pinnacle ones do as well even though their OWN software doesn't work -- I am using an express card on a laptop works fine.

Win 7 drivers and applications for Hauppage products are on their site if you want to use their drivers.

I haven't tried Satellite or HD cards yet - my remarks are for Terrestial Digital TV (or "Freeview").
