There’s no vouching for the quality of image you’ll get from this thing, but £29.99 for a TV tuner card is pretty impressive. AverMedia is the company responsible, its TV GO 007 Plus card provides TV, video capture and video conferencing. It also comes with 16-channel preview, TV programme scheduler, Channel Groups and a Lockout option for adding parental controls. It’s an analogue tuner and supports NTSC, PAL and SECAM. It will record TV or Video into MPEG 1, 2 and 4 formats so you can plug in a video camera and convert video to digital formats.
