Well, since nobody seems to have responded yet, I will. I use the ATI
TV Wonder-VE which is a mono software encoding card for less than $50.
Note this is NOT one of the "All-in-Wonder" cards. They don't work.
I'm pretty darn happy with it. It's much better quality than a 6 hour
setting on a VHS recorder, but not quite real broadcast quality on my
system. I'm saving up for a PVR-250 later this year.
