If you do are you running it under Windows XP?

& are you using the PlayTV Pro v8.01b TV software?

I have one but have not been able to run it as it requires ActiveX 8 to work. I have XP home SP2 and ActiveX 9.

The ones from DSE are good - work with the Linux-2.6 kernel OOTB - Based on the Philips saa7134 chipset :-)

Anything will do, it doesnt matter whether its 32 or 64 bit. It wont make any diff quality wise. It might in other ways if the program and windows are both 64 bit.

Just as long as u have a reasonably fast system a tv tuner will work fine and the quality will be good, and a decent aerial for the signal/picture helps. Depends on whether u wanna use a PCI or USB tuner.

It shouldnt matter which 1. BUT one maybe better than the other to use.
