For hardware you'll need a TV-Tuner card such as the Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250.

Software wise Windows Media Center is installed already if you have Windows Home Premium or higher.

If you have a number of digital channels, or you only receive digital through your cable provider, you will need a CableCard tuner, such as the one from Ceton.

If you want analog and digital, unfortunately you'll need two cards.

I have two of the HVR-2250s and it's rock solid. A little slow on channel locking, but otherwise a great card.
