Steps 1 Decide whether you need a PVR card or just a TV Tuner. If all you want to do is watch TV on your PC monitor or LCD display, you probably do not need to purchase a card that includes the specialized hardware accelerator.
2 Decide whether you want PCI or USB. If you don't mind opening the case of your PC to install a new PCI-based card, you will save 30-50 buying a PCI version of the product.
