    I am not sure what forum this should go under but here I go...
    I am looking at adding AM/FM radio to my HTPC setup. I know that using the FM tuner build into a TV tuner seems to work (I used to have a Haupauge that did it) but I was thinking of some mothod to get my AM stations working to. I played with the streaming radio plugins for MP but the local stations i listen to are not supported or dont have web streams.
    I did find the Griffin RadioSHARK that is a couple years old but fairly cheap on ebay these days.

    Are there any AM/FM tuners for the PC that work with MP? USB, PCI(x) whatever is fine as long as i can tune AM and FM stations. any help is greatly appreciated
