Not sure if I put this under the right section of the forum.

I want to turn my computer into a dvr, I am just not sure if I should buy a tuner card, or a capture card. I would be using a verizon vios set top box to get the video feed, so I am not sure if i would need a tuner card.

However, I would like to record in the highest setting possible. Right now I have hdmi out to my lcd tv. To get the best quality recordings, what would everyone recommend? I have build pc's before, but never really touched dvr.
