i am looking to add hd capability to my hp media center pc. can someone (in plain english, i'm old :) ) give me an idea of which cards i should be looking at? i went through many a thread here, and the various acronyms, etc. make it impossible for me to decode what people mean. :)

your help is appreciated, and i can absorb a few newbie cheap shots if necessary. :)

tia.

What source will the HD content be coming from? Off Air Antenna? Cable TV?

An ATI HD Wonder wont work. He needs a card with QAM support.

There's a few threads about that right now that have some good info.
