Well do you subscribe to Sky or Cable?  If so you'll need to connect
to the analog output of your STB and the cards of choice seem to he
PVR cards by Hauppauge (PVR150 or PVR500) or the older 250 and 350.

A better option in many ways though is Freeview via one of several
DVB-T cards or USB devices that are available.  Plenty of channels
(including radio) and no worries about channel changing on an external
device.  It's also easy to add cards to record more that one channel
at the same time.
