How to view TV in a Desktop PC via a USB TV Tuner?

\015 Which is the best USB TV tuner available in the Indian Mart today? I have a HP Compaq PC(Intel core 2 DUO, 1 GB ram). As I am planning to get a TV connection I would like to know if a USB TV tuner works best with a cable connection or a digital set box. \015\012Does a USB TV Tuner damage a PC in anyway?\015

Answers :

Depending on which kind of tv tuner you are looking (analog basic cable) or HD tuner, the higher end tv tuners will usually handle both basic cable or connecting via satellite or some sort of set top box.

\015\012I would look for the ATI TV wonder HD, your going to want a tv tuner that can do hardware encoding on the actual tuner itself, older tuners will rely on your pc to process a lot of the data.
