I have a 2003 Mac G5 dual 1.8 running OS X 10.4.11

I would like to install a TV tuner and be able to use my G5 like a DVR. I would just be connecting the co-ax cable from my rooftop antenna to get the digital broadcast signal.

Can anyone recommend a good PCI tunner I could install? Also, do I need any specialized software for it to function as a DVR, and if so, which do you recommend?

I believe you will need software to use any of the TV tuners, I use elgato's EyeTV and find it to be a pretty good program. I just use a USB tuner its a WinTV-HVR 950Q and it works pretty well.
