4 out of 5 eggsMSI

Pros: Works great. Has pretty good picture quality. I have never had a problem with it.

Cons: I gave it a 4 because of the software that is bundled with it. Powercinema 4 isn't very good at all. Pick up sagetv if you can.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless Device

Pros: Comes with PowerCinema 4... a pretty decent piece of software.

Cons: The software won't recognize the device in Vista. Occasionally the system will blue-screen. I've tried two different cards... both with the same response. Simply put, this is completely unusable.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat tv tuner!

Pros: Excellent quality, literally uses 5% CPU when recording, easy to install and setup.

Cons: You have to buy additional "tivo" software to get the full functionality out of this card.

Other Thoughts: After reading up on dozens of reviews for various tv tuners, this one came out on top in terms of price and quality.

5 out of 5 eggsWell worth it

Pros: Excellent Tuner for the Money
MCE support
Good software bundle.

Cons: Chip runs a little hot. But good cooling in your case will resolve that.

Other Thoughts: I opted for super quiet on my HTPC, so a chipset heatsink works like a champ for cooling.

Install drivers from AMD/ATI site for best compatibility.

3 out of 5 eggsBetter picture quality But....

Pros: Picture quality is better than the Hauppauge 150 that it replaced. Extra remote (though buttons are less than ideal) works with WinMCE2005 easily.

Cons: Some channels only tune static for audio where they would come in with the Hauppauge, though these channels had static in the first place. This is cable TV.

Other Thoughts: I'm torn between picture quality and audio availability.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Card itself works good. Powercinema that comes with it is junk!!! I use ATI MMC 9.15. For recording and watching tv/radio. Works ok. Still waiting on Intervideo to make something that is fully functional with this card. (Christv is good, but kinda more "involved" to use).

Cons: Software sucks. But ATI MMC 9.15 works, until something better.

2 out of 5 eggsNot Impressed

Pros: I was able to watch and capture satellite tv instead of having to place a tv next to my computer. I like the remote control which doubles as a wireless mouse. I also enjoyed listening to the radio on my computer. You can record that as well. The software will basically give you all of the functionality of Windows XP Media Center. This was nice because I have Windows XP Pro.

Cons: I couldn't get the composite (RCA) nor could I get the S-Video a/v extender to work. One of my goals in buying this device was to copy all of my videos on my camcorder onto my computer. I called Cyberlink's tech support, and they said I'd have to speak with someone from MSI. I spoke with MSI's tech support several times and they didn't seem very helpful either.

Other Thoughts: If all you want to do is capture Cable or Satellite TV via coax or listen to your radio then this card is fine. However, if you want to capture video from a camcorder or other device via RCA composite or s-video then this device is worthless. Don't purchase. I'm going to order a pinnacle TV card which is supposed to be really good.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat with Vista RC2

Pros: Works great only wish I had 2-3 of these!

Cons: None with the card, wish the remote was RF instead of IR
