4 out of 5 eggsGood card, bad software

Comments: Really good card. Remote is very poorly made, but it works, and it's an extra feature. TV quality is OK on my 19" LCD, but it's pretty good when I hook up my Xbox. My only problem is that the channel up/down buttons don't work. Not on the remote, and also not in the program itself. I need to manually change channels, so channel-surfing is not possible. Good value for price. I hear some people recommending DivX, I have that, but how is it possible to record in that? It doesn't show up in the drop-down box under capture setup.

3 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for (maybe less)

Comments: Newegg service is the best. I got my card way before I expected it. The card however is a disappointment. Took forever to install even following the instructions which is for a "different card". I keep comparing the picture on Newegg, the box and the actual product and none of them match. The product was supposed to have an "Audio In" connection but the one I got did not have any. I have to go out and buy an adaptor so I can put the DV cam and the card audio out to my line in. The capture is jumpy and the sound gets distorted when edited in Ulead and Nero. I ended up making silent movies.

5 out of 5 eggsNO Tech Support

Comments: Have a HONEStechTV.exe issue after installing SP2. Card useless, and Tech Support non-existant. I'll suck it up and pay for card from a more reputable manufacturer next time. BY THE WAY. If you CAN get it to work the picture is pretty nice actually. Software does blow though.

2 out of 5 eggsBuggy

Comments: I had way too many problems with this card.After several software and driver updates, the manufacturer tells me that it will NOT work in my system because I use two soundcards. That should be stated in system requirements as a minimum.

3 out of 5 eggs

Comments: Bought this card only wanting to spend a little amount of money. Software is really bad, it can play video with nice sound, but it cannot capture, and the vids captured almost crashed my comp. Remote works great, TV tuner program is nice and stable, yet needs better graphics. Another case of a good piece of hardware with really bad software to go with it. Also, Dr. Divx cannot capture sound in video from this card. Get better software to make card really great!

5 out of 5 eggsnice stuff

Comments: THis is my fist time dealing with kworld tv cards. it took me a few mintues to install it once i got my other wires from my computer set up. i give the hard ware a 5 rating but the software is kinda junky because it has trouble reconizing that i have cable tv hooked up to it. i use it to watch tv, but mostly to record music videos. the sound quality is good. that part is awsome. you have to get divx player from for you to watch videos. you also dont have to do any video encoding. i dont care for the fm, but i didnt buy it for that. so its not a concern.

Newegg got it to me quick as usuall. they have a life long costumer. THanks again, pyrodog06.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the money!

Comments: This crad works great for the money. I have another card from a different company that I paid 4x for. This one works just as good. This is an outstanding deal! Easy set up too. I have not tried the capture feature yet, so I can't comment on that. But for TV it works great!
