Recommended digital tv tuner card for my WHS box? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Please can anyone recommend a digital tv tuner card for my WHS? I understand that Windows Server 2003 isn't exactly the target OS for compatibility with a tuner card. Does *any* tuner card come with drivers explicitly for Windows Server 2003?

    fyi: I'm planning to use SageTV on my WHS.

    Thanks in anticipation

    p.s. Hauppauge appears to be a popular brand choice. My local favourite pc store only sells the Hauppauge HVR-2200 Dual Tuner
    http://www.netplus.com.au/products-detail.asp?pcode=CNTVHAHVR2200&cat=Controller&subcat=&code=CN18, so I tempted by this one but wanted to get a few second opinions first.

  • A number of users here in the forums have had some success with this; I would suggest you do some searches. However, please be aware that this isn't a supported use of Windows Home Server; you may encounter issues that aren't easy to solve, and you'll be using tools that are potentially risky for the stability of your home server. Don't let that stop you, but be cautious. :)
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
