    The NVIDIA NV200 supports has two NTSC tuners and connections for two STBs
    if you are not going to use an antenna or cable connection.

    also, Emuzed Angel makes one, I have it in dual tuner and would rate it OK.
    But I shouldn't complain because I don't really watch TV on my computer,
    just record and burn DVD's which look perfect when played back on a TV.

    Note that if you need to connect two set top boxes, using the Hauppauge
    MCE-500 will require another slot on your computer case for the
    daughterboard (which will typically prevent use of one of your PCI/whatever
    slots, unless you are lucky enough to have extra space for whatever reason)

    I own eVGAs NVTV Dual Tuner PCI card and really like it. You should check it
    out. I also like that it ships with NVidias DVD decoder that's compatible
    with MCE2005. It's not the latest version but at least you can start watching
    TV and DVDs out of the box without needing to purchase a decoder.

    You can get the upgraded decoder for free. Visit eVGAs web site for
    details. Basically, you just need to use your product code with the upgrade
    software. It works well and you get a full version of the latest decoder.
