Hello,I have an an ASUS Model: CS5111-AP007 (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=9075715&st=Asus&type=product&id=1218016140886) and i'm looking for a PCTV Card that will fit and be compatible and hopefully pick up digital and HD channels for computer. I was wondering if you could suggest the proper card for me.
Welcome to HotHardware, akpululu! If your Asus is among THIS line be forewarned that it is what CNET refers to as a 'closed system' and not considered to be upgradeable.

I'm not sure, but I think there are USB TV tuners available, although you'd need to check where you live to see if there are any compatible ones. They're quite handy to switch between PCs and if you can't internally upgrade your PC.

Thanks. I do have a USB TV tuner I was just hoping I could find an internal card so I didn't have to worry the fussiness of keeping the USB stick in the port.
unfortanatly Like Dave said you have no internal space for a PCI tuner.
Thanks. I was just curious. The specs tell me I have an open PCI-E slot but I also know there is no way I can fit a full-sized card in there. I was hoping someone may know of another card, perhaps a notebook card, that I may be able to fit in there.
