    One big problem the link you gave are for analogue cards not digital cards. There are two dual digital (dvb-t) cards that I know off, and one of them is a pci-e (TERRATEC 2400i) card the other is the fusion hdtv dual tuner card see http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/acatalog/info_4338.html but it's not cheap.
    If you have the space two pci cards will be cheaper or 1 pci and 1 usb2 tuner. If you want more info visit www.tv-cards.com
    Also the difference between the two you linked is that you get nvidia's dvd codec with the dearer one.

    thanks for the replys,
    considering just getting a single digi tv card now, since >100 is a little bit too much thinking about it, looking at spending about £40-60 now on a single digital one which can record however im intrested in the hauppage 1100. :hehe:
