Looking for a simple way to watch and record OTA DTV channels using Hauppauge HVR-1800 PCI-E card. I really am not a fan of the PVR type progs, such as MythTV. I just want something simple, that will allow me to tune the channels, change the channels, has fullscreen/window mode/aspect ratio and a simple push button record. Don't need all the bells and whistles.

I would take a look into tvtime.

Kaffeine and Me Tv are both worth considering.

sorry for the Hijack

but did the 1800 work out of the box or was some config required to get it to work?

Should work out of the box, just install Kaffeine or Me-tv.
