Default A somewhat complicated TV-Tuner question

I bought a m7330n HP media center a while back, and it came with a "Conexant Falcon II TV Tuner". It works great with windows media center on XP Media Center Edition, but i'm going to be getting a new computer soon. This new computer is going to have a different version of windows XP on it, which is very small (the iso file is 5mb i hear), and doesn't have the windows media center on it.
So my question is: will i be able to use my tv tuner with a different program on this new computer? Or better yet, is there any way i can download windows media center?
I have the windows xp driver for the tuner, so that isn't an issue. I just dont know of any programs that can use this tuner that i can download =(

I really wouldn't want this great piece of hardware to go to waste!
