Question TV Tuner Cards

Who makes the best TV Tuner Cards for Windows Vista Home Premium / Ultimate? I have been looking at Hauppauge, nVidia, and Pinnaccle.

Any reccomendations?

Dave

The ATI TV Wonder Elite TV Tuner card I feel is the best because it's suppose to have the best image quality. A bit steep for the price, but people are willing to pay for quality.

Absolutely. There should be no compatibility problems there.

nvidia card has the best picture when it come to media center cards but it a resource hog. ATI has the best compatibility. haupage is the lightest on resources. I have all 3.

I have a sony card that kills all of them (it use no cpu resources), but it only works on sony machines and it isn't MCE compatible
