Digital TV Card?

    Anyone have experience with these? Ideally I would like to be able to watch freeview tv on my PC, as I don't really have room for a TV beside the PC, and the ability to use it as a PVR would be useful...

    Not 100% sure on this, but the card I was looking at for the same reasons as yourself was this WinTV Nexus-S:

    It has a built in freeview decoder, the functionality to connect it to a satellite dish / cable and support for digital radio.

    available from overclockers.co.uk:

    I thought it was really pricey for what it is, but iirc standalone digital tuners cost ~£100.

    Edit: There is a "freeview" one for digital terrestrial only called the WinTV Nova-t. http://www.stuff-uk.net/acatalog/z_ST-909.htm - this may be a lot better for you as it costs ~£90 (shop around tho) from that site. This isn't suitable for me, as it doesn't support satellite I believe.

    DVB boxes for freeview cost as low as £40. We sell a sagem one at work for £59.99.

    Guest? Account deleted or strange custom title?

    Custom title methinks, Leggy is also running around with one, 'banned' - it won't take Deebs long to ban them from the list of words you can use ;)

    We payed for the right to have custom titles, as long as they dont break the coc I dont see whats wrong with them. Forum should be removed from banned words for those who want to masquerade as Forum Deity as well.

    Why is 'forum' a banned word?

    So you cant set forum deity as your title apparently.
