    I'm looking at having TV on my computer.

    Am looking at a couple of TV cards.

    My uncle has this one and said that it's fantastic -

    Compro VideoMate DVB-T200 Digital TV Internal PCI - Retail (GX-000-CP) - £41

    I've also found a card that people are raving about -

    Nebula DigiTV PCI Master Tuner card - £90

    Is this worth over double the price of the other?

    Why is it so expensive compared to other cards? What's so special about it?

    I've read that the Compro is a good TV card, but i'm only going by what i've read as I don't have one myself. Sorry can't be of much further help.

    The compro is good but the nebula is better. The nebula is probably the best digi-tv card out at the moment. It's the software that comes with it that really makes it stand apart. Easy to use, stable, nice features etc. Not so much of a difference if your going to be using XP MCE.

    I have the Compro and haven't had any trouble with it, other than sometimes when changing channels on MCE it wont find a signal straight away, so you have to change to another channel and then back again to get it to tune in. It happens to a friend of mine's card as well, so I don't think it's due to low signal.
