    Building Media Center PC & Harmony 880 Compatibility


    I'm going to build a Media Center PC and I bought the Logitech Harmony 880 Universal Remote [ http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/remotes/universal_remotes/devices/372&cl=us,en ].

    What is the best HDTV TV Tuner card to use?

    I was told that I need to get a TV tuner card that comes with a remote and IR (infrared) receiver so that the Harmony 880 is able to control the functions for the Media Center PC.

    Could someone please suggest a good HDTV tuner card that you've used or know of.

    Thank You

    Forgot to add that I'm building it with Vista 64Bit Home Premium because I was told that I can also use vista instead of XP Media Center.

    I purchased a Hauppauge WiNTV PVR-350 a year or so ago, and it works great... at the time, was rated one of the best... take a look at what else they have here.
