sorry I didn't mention it before but I also want fm tunner suport...

It looks like I could get more out of this one...
this one only supports 640 x 480

but I am not familiar with tv tunners, as I have never used one before... so I don't know if that would be good or bad...

surely I would want a higher resolution? I looked at this one to... but the controller looks crappy,
this one supports 768 x 576

The only good TV cards are put out by ATI themselves.
