Why don't you just order the card you want, It's a good one! Don't settle for less. If you don't have a credit card, Your local PC shop should be able to order it for you, If you pay up front.

Good luck

I posted the non media center edition below it. So buy that one. That is what I was pointing out. There are two different versions.

john3, I looked at 5 places on the list/link you gave, I couldn't find anything and gave up. I will be building a MCE PC real soon and I will have to order everything. Why don't you want to order a TV card?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...7&Order=rating

Only 3 of the 14 Hauppauge TV cards are strictly for Windows MCE, look at where it says "Operating Systems Supported:" I think the strictly MCE TV cards come without some software because Windows MCE already has it.

alexsabree, Why do you say to get a external TV card? Can you hook up 2 computers to 1 external TV tuner card?

here are all the reasons:

1)I live in Canada
2) none of the stores have the version of the Hauppauge for XP only for MCE
3)I dont want to order from US


whats the difference from external to internal?
