Need a really good DVB card for Vista/XP
I currently have the excellent Nebula Electronics DVB card which has served me well up untill now. The problem im facing is that I plan to upgrade to Vista/7 in the near future (64bit) and there are no 64bit drivers for the PCI card I have.
A friend gave me their Happauge HVR 1300, which on paper seemed fine, but it doesnt pick up half the channels that I get with my nebual (see attached piccy).
I was wondering what you guys are using. Ideally, a PC card option is best as im lacking the space for an extra box/server etc.

Steer clear of Compro cards - we had one here and it was utterly useless. Feature set looked good, unfortunately, it didn't work!

This: BGT3540 - BlackGold is the Rolls Royce of tuner cards. It used to have some 'issues' but the latest drivers sort that out.
