In Linux I use Kaffeine to watch and record ATSC TV. It is nice and easy to use. I am looking for a simple program similar to that for Windows. I know there are things like Media Portal but I found they would fail when you really wanted to use them most.(due to they complexity)

I have never tried Kaffiene, so I have no basis for comparison.
I have tried NextPVR for ATSC and it worked well enough for that. The easiest option for guide service is Schedules Direct, which costs $25/year. However, if you have a Windows 7 PC, I'd recommend Windows Media Center instead. Setup is easier and it comes with free guide service. If you have a Hauppauge ATSC TV tuner, many come bundled with WinTV. A free program guide is provided via TitanTV.Ignore list: hello_hello, tried, TechLord
Oh right most people won't know what Kaffeine is since it's exclusive to Linux.(I dual-boot)
So what I am looking for is something simple and relatively lightweight, think Media Player Classic if it could tune ATSC television.
I don't need a TV guide, I have free ones and can get online.
I will give NextPVR a try.(I have a feeling a tried before)
I have a Hauppauge TV tuner but since I bought it at the equivalent of a thrift store I don't have the software for it. The drivers are free but the software you have to pay for. Since I can reboot into Linux to use it(although this is sometimes inconvenient), it's not worth paying for anything to get it too work.
