What software do you use to watch tv on your pc?

I just got myself a PNY GeForce FX5700 graphics card with tv tuner. The problem I'm having is that the Nvidia Forceware tv software that came with it is a resource hog. Doing 2 things at once is impossible and even watching tv is tough. Any other software (preferably free) that you guys can reccomend? I don't need all the PVR and editing features that this software has. I just want to watch tv. Thanks.

I use ATI's Media Center, I don't think that will do you much good though. "Chris TV" is said to be a very good TV Card controlling program with PVR.

DScaler. But it may not work with that card. You'll need to check.
