Digital TV for the Computer

I hadn't looked for a while, but it appears that Computer Digital TV Cards are now available for use in Australia!

They are still quite expensive (A$330). Hopefully they come down in price over the next 6 months or so.

Existing analog TV Tuner cards provide very poor quality picture. Digital ones should provide perfect picture, and also require less CPU to record shows (as the picture is already MPEG encoded).

If I mix this with some Alpha release Home Theatre PC software, I might be able to get a decent setup going.
