After viewing various PVR solutions I've decided to go with GB-PVR for various reasons, one being what appears to be an active plug-in development community.

However, before I run over to the nearest computer hardware store I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what capture card to go with. I don't know enough about them to make an educated decision and would rather not buy a low end one now and kick myself later because it lacks features that my reduce the functionality of GB-PVR.

If it matters (in regards to hw vs sw decoding) I am running a P4 3ghz w/512 memory.

Thanks in advance.

Your safest bet is probably a Hauppauge PVR250. This card performs well, and is well support by all sorts of PVR software out there.

Thanks! The only other question I have is this:
Should I feign illness to leave work and go pick it up?

Fake a serious one and enjoy GBPVR for several days uninterrupted by work ;)
