    Ok, I'm lookin for a TV tuner for 2 reasons, one to watch TV (obviously =P) and also to play my Xbox 360. HD would be a plus, it could be one that only works on windows since I have bootcamp. Could you guys please give me some recommendations, thanks!

    I was looking at that, but the only problem is that it's not HD =/

    Just a word of advice- I have heard that you get a lot of lag when playing video games on a tv tuner because the tv tuner has to encode the video while you are playing.

    I heard the eyetv could handle 360 games without lag, anyone have an experience with this?
