1 out of 5 eggsfrom bad to worse

Pros: QAM Tuner, that's it

Cons: no WMC QAM support (no the card's fault), price, antenna is useless, no FM, nearly nonexistent instructions, gets really hot

Other Thoughts: It stopped working a little over a month in (how convenient!) saying “PCIe slot could not be initialized”. Brought the whole PC down. In the process of RMAing to Aver. Their customer support is nonexistent on the phone: “leave a message?!” RMAed using tech support online, we’ll see what happens, but I can already guess I will get a refurbished card in return. I’ll have to pay shipping TO and FROM Aver. What a laugh! Zero out of five eggs would be better.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Please contact Technical Support at (408) 942-2121 if you need support with the replacement card.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Excellent alternative to the expensive Tivo and even a DVR. I am using a new Dell Studio with the i7 Intel chip and this thing is amazing. The only suggestion I have is to also add a larger hard drive to your system. You could get away with a 500GB, but I just ordered a 2TB.

Cons: The program uses Windows Media Center. In our area the program guide and the media center channels mismatch so it has made it a challenge to get the OnScreen guide to show what is really on the channel. Again, I think it just has something to do with my location. I have been able to manually correct the channels as I need them so it still works out.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend the product. I have been really pleased with it's performance. It was very easy to setup and use.

4 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review

Pros: Everything worked fine up until now...

Cons: All of a sudden I cannot pick up any stations with my cable connection. No changes at all I am wondering if the card fried. Really this is strange I have owned this card for over a month with no problems.

Other Thoughts: I will be trying to contact support soon I have never had a problem I have not been able to solve myself I will update again if I come to a solution.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card- Qam requires treaking

Pros: Great Tuner, Great Picture Quality, Easy to setup with proper drivers and components.

Cons: Can only tune one digital source at a time

Other Thoughts: I did not use the included driver! I downloaded the latest drivers from AverMedia. I updated my Windows Media Center to "TV Pack 2008" before installing card or drivers.
Windows media Center works great with this card and scans all QAM channels.
My provider does not provide station names via QAM, so I am still trying to figure out how to get the channels and the EPG to match.

System:
Dell Studio Slim
Core 2 Duo E4500 2.2GHz
4GB DDR2 800
Intel G45 Chipset
GMA X4500HD Video via HDMI
Vista x86 (TV Pack 2008)

4 out of 5 eggsGreat with Vista

Pros: Relatively easy install, easy set up within Vista with TV Pack (search the web for this), excellent picture on 20" HP widescreen monitor. Runs cool (well, less hot anyway) compared to other cards I've tried.

Cons: If you're not using Vista Media center, this is much harder to set up and use. And you need a fairly modern PC rig to run this effectively. Included software is not so good.

Other Thoughts: I have tried a bunch of other tuners and various media center packages - this one was by far the best AT THE TIME. I'm surprised the price has not come down in a year. I would buy this again.

4 out of 5 eggsgood tuner

Pros: Changes channels faster than most, two tuners, no freezes yet, analog quality is good.

Cons: One tuner is digital one is analog (but I knew this, so no egg deduct). The remote doesn't register button presses every time, which drives me a little insane. Don't even bother installing the AverMedia center software. The clear QAM information has to be manually entered into Windows 7 Media Center and it doesn't pick up all of the QAM signals my TV does. I think this is more W7MC than the AverMedia tuner, though.

Other Thoughts: Good tuner overall. I use the digital tuner for OTA high def and the analog for analog cable. It's nice, I can record and watch something else. The Comcast QAM sucks. I would buy this tuner again.

1 out of 5 eggsTrouble with the use of this

Pros: I don't know enough of this to know if it is any good or not.

Cons: The setup of this and the use of this is difficult. There is no documentation. Newegg should be ashamed to sell this. But, your mileage may vary.

I've had this for months, but finally got around to working with it. If it was my first week of use, I'd probably return it.

Other Thoughts: I've set up the card, and it has detected WBZ-DT of Boston.

Now if I bring up Aver Media Center, and have it choose the TV option, I then click on the TV screen displayed.

It goes to TV, and shows that ATSC (QAM) is selected.

The control bar at the bottom does not have the channel selector enabled. The video feed in the display area shows only black.

What am I screwing up? The Philips antenna I have is going to the ANT IN connector on the board.

What should I do to see WBZ-DT?

2 out of 5 eggsWorks with Vista Media Center

Pros: Dual tuners. Remote worked in Vista. But I hate vista, and won't switch to watch TV.

Cons: Very unstable in XP. I don't have XP Media Center, so I downloaded Aver Media Center, which frequently freezes and needs to be terminated with Windows Task Manager. Channel scanning works one minute, then doesn't work the next. Program guide useless. No user guide or help. Couldn't find XP drivers for remote. Sound was inaudible for many digital channels, and had to be adjusted at the speaker, making other window sounds too loud.

Other Thoughts: This card worked better with SageTV which had a decent program guide, but 3rd party software adds to the total cost. I still had problems with channels disappearing and needed to re-scan. Still no remote outside of Windows Media Center.

They've been making these cards for years. Why can't someone put together a decent package? All TV tuner cards seem to get horrible reviews.

I returned the card. Don't know what to try next.

3 out of 5 eggsGood tuner

Pros: Worked right out the box. Remote works well with media center. Image is nice and crisp.

Cons: It freezes after about an hour and requires hard start. This started happening after I intalled the tuner and I have a new computer with intel i7 920 processor and X58 board. I updated the driver from their web site and still doing it. Not sure whether it has something to do with the tuner or media center.

5 out of 5 eggs9 Of These So Far

Pros: Nice card! I've been putting these in the HTPCs that I build and sell. This is the first one I've ordered from the Egg since I bought the others from a small computer shop (one of my competitors) that went out of business. They work great, are easy to set up and easy to train the customers that I sell the computers to on how to use it.

Cons: None that I can see so far and I haven't received any complaints from my customers :). Previous reviewers that have complained about poor picture quality etc. may just not have a computer that will handle the high def and whatever.
See below.....

Other Thoughts: I have installed these on 9 similar systems and they all worked great but I did install one on a lower end computer that had onboard graphics and a slower fsb and 2 gigs of ram and I got the poor results that some reviewers are stating. The minimum machine that I put these in has at least an AMD 6000+ or Intel E7400 cpu, 3 gigs of high perf memory and a NVIDIA 8600 GT or ATI HD 4650 video card. You should see how one of these performs in mobo with a 790FX chipset and a AMD Phenom II 955 quad core, 4 gigs of OCZ Platinum DDR3 1600 memory and 2 HD 4870s Crossfire. All I can say is WOW!
