Default I ordered some parts and ideas for a TV Tuner

I made a thread a while ago about buying some new stuff for a HTPC, i finally ordered it today.

I ordered a CPU and Motherboard to replace my current Athlon XP 2500+ and Asus A7N8X-X

I ordered a Sempron Palermo 2800+ (64bit, SSE2, SSE3, 256kb, Socket 754) and an Asus K8N-E Pro

The old Athlon XP + motherboard will be put into my HTPC. So now i need ideas for a Digital TV tuner. I need a TV tuner that is Digital and Analog, regular PCI, and not really expensive. I would like it to be Mythtv compatible, if it isnt i might need to use Windows MCE. It needs to be able to run well on this system: Athlon XP 2500+, 512mb Ram, 9200se with S-VIDEO out to a TV.

it's hard to find a tuner card that supports both analogue and digital. i think avermedia had a card at a decent price that offered that though. i'll have a look and see if i can find the model

edit: you have got to love nintek

Yeah, looking around $100, might buy a second hand one.

Does any of you have any experience with these tuners?

You sure?

You would think that if it supports digital that it will be backwards compatible to analogue.

no if it supports digital it doesn't neccessarily support analogue, it has to be a hybrid card. the one i posted is compatable
