Can anyone recommend a decent tv tuner. I don't really need to record tv. I just need a tv for my room next year and would like to save the space. So one that gets a good picture would be fine. My budget is under $50.

Any should be fine, even the USB "dongle" ones work OK.

However, be aware that in most situations you do need a good external TV antenna, no card I have ever seen or used has been useful without a good signal.

Due to the amount of "interference" generated by the average PC, the ability to use weak signals/indoor antenna's is poor when compared to a TV set.

Kiwiguy, I have a Geforce 7300 GS video card in my pc and want to put a Visiontek Theater 550 Pro mce tuner card in for catv and fm radio. Is there any compatibility issues with using the two different brands for vid and tuner?
