    Can anyone recommend a decent PCI card with composite AV video and sound input. I need to connect the yellow, white and red connections of an RCA cable to it so I can watch live TV on my computer.

    I intend on using a splitter/switch so I can also hook up my Xbox 360 to it.

    Something like this would be ideal...

    but I don't want outdated/refurbished stuff.


    Ideally I would want a HDMI input card but I don't think these exist?
    Thanks

    the reason for my asking for the type of slots on your motherboard is that you can get a video card that has vga, dvi & hdmi on it as my radeon hd6450 does.

    i know about TV tuners, but i need to connect a satellite box to my PC. the satellite box is connected to various other things which is why i cant plug the satellite cable direct into the pc. that's why i need a card that will accept the scart connection from my satellite box
