My dad has an XP media edition (2005) machine from dell. I am visiting him in Illinois. Recently lost the memory on the dell dimension e310. Computer only 6 minths old. They replaced the memory, then the media center tuner would not work. Cannot watch tv with it at all. Freaking dell said the card (I think it is an ATI Unified AVStream Driver) was beyond warrenty and burnt out, but they had to previously (from March to May) replace the external tuners(2 of them were replaced via the original computer order) with an inside tuner(ordered and mailed in May) that wasa refurbished part. What a rip dell is now. Refurbished? I think they charged full price. What can i do to replace the tuner card with something fairly cheap? Dell wants me to buy a new one (another leg and arm deal). This is my dads machine and he doesn't use the machine all that much but it has been a real source of heartache for him.

If your Dell has a PCMCIA slot, the Sabrent TV-PCB01 TV TUNER is great and cheap. I use it in one of my notebooks.
