i have absoultly no idea about HDTV digital tuner cards and was wondering what to look for when buying 1 i live in australia and have about $100 to spend (thats about $75 US) what should i look for and what is a good mid range tuner card?
If i get the tuner i am definatly going to get a larger hard drive around 160Gb's im thinking of a segate 7,200 RPM, 8MB cache ATA-100 hard drive.
i have two 120 GB seagate 7,200 RPM hard drives that are ATA can you mix serial ATA and ATA-100 drives together? i only ask becasue i have heard that they are a little faster in the transfer rate is this correct?
would it be worth getting a Serial ATA drive?
and what is Serial ATA does it have to be in a RAID set-up or can it be a single drive?
is this drive any good for capturing HDTV and then burning it to dvd:
Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 SATA NCQ 3Gb/s ST3160812AS 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
thanks for all of your asistance
