I have a hauppauge card too, works great I think.  I recently remember 
reading about a TV tuner device that you connect to your network, then 
any computer on the network can access the video stream.  That might be 
worth a look if you're thinking about buying a TV tuner anyway.  IIRC 
that was an HD device, maybe there's one that would handle NTSC too.
