My System Specs


Well this WinTV-PVR-150 I have sitting in front of me has RCA in. I've never used it though I just bought it cause it was cheap. Thought I'd use it eventually but never did. I've now got an actual PVR to record TV. You don't need an HD tuner card because you won't be able to record HD from your provider anyways, with those specific tuners. Those tuners are for recording over-the-air (OTA) HD channels which I'm not sure how many are in the Toronto area, maybe a few? I'm guessing like CBC, CBS, NBC, FOX and channels like that. So if that's what you want to do then ya those are the tuners you need, but if you're wanting to recording from a cable/satellite box then an HD tuner is not needed, unless you can find one with component-in or hdmi-in if they even exist or are at a reasonable price.
