    TV Tuner Software

    Hi all,
    I am looking for any good recommendations for TV Tuner Card software. I have installed the software that came with the tuner card, it works OK but is very featureless.
    I am mainly looking for third party software that will work in Australia.
    Thanks heaps.

    Bill

    BeyondTV and SageTV seem to be the two popular ones in this area. They do cost a bit of change, though. Also, it depends on what kind of card you have. Some software is only compatible with some cards, some software works best with certain types of hardware, some TV-tuner cards are "hardware-based", some are "software-based."

    There's are pretty good reviews and user forums at http:// www.htpcnews.com


    I would (and did when I did this project in my home) there

    I've heard very good things about WinTV, although I don't know if there is a version for the Land Down Under. Might be worth checking into.

    Bill,

    I was just doing some research on PVR software over at http://www.htpcnews.com/ and I remembered your query.

    Have you checked out the new MS Media center poduct? That one is the one that I read has the greatest coverage for EPG (Electronic Program Guides).
