5 out of 5 eggsShowtime

Pros: This is the first time that I have used a TV card in a computer and it will not be my last. Installation is easy and quick. When installing and it comes time to set the card up for TV reception choose NTSC. Most people will want to choose Digital (ClearQAM), but NTSC will allow you to load channel 3 from your digital cable box or other receiver and then you will be capable of receiving the channels from your cable box just as you did when the cable box was attached to the TV. Has a remote controller that works pretty efficiently. Great buy.

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: None at this time.

4 out of 5 eggsOut of the Box Success -First Time!

Pros: Easy to set up. Great form factor (should fit almost anywhere. Comes with low-form-factor bracket. Comes with tuner and guide software. Records.

Cons: A little bit muddy video. Remote could use control for full-screen viewing. Driver download during install was v e r y slow.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to go in my ASUS Desktop Computer D510MT-I34160081F Intel Core i3 4160 (3.60 GHz) 4 GB DDR3 500 GB HDD Windows 7 Professional because my wife likes to watch TV programs that I don't care for, and our venerable (10 year old!) PCI TV card doesn't make it in a PCI-e world. Straight out of the box no issues. The install DID take half-of-forever to download the driver update, but was accomplished without issue. I used to tech for "a major PC Manufacturer" (actually several over the decades )and was used to multiple fails, or intestinal installs of software if not on a Media-rich OS, with TV cards. Not with this one!

I took one egg for the muddy video.

I haven't had this card crash or fail through a month of viewing. The video is a little bit more 'muddy' (less vibrant) than the old card, but the card does the job without stutter, buffering or any artifacts - BIG pluses in my book!

Others have noted software issues and crashes - not my experience. I ran this on Win7 (pre-installed) and also after Win 10 upgrade. No issues. I am running Win Pro 64 with 8GB of RAM on the above Core i3. For the money, this is a good card.

One caveat: be Sure to put the DVD where you will Always Be Able to Find It! If you ever need to re-install and you can't find it, they charge your $10 for another.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: Easy to install - tuner is very good at picking up over the air broadcasts even with weak signals.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Tuner Sensitivity

Pros: Excellent tuner sensitivity
Short PIC-E card
Comes with all accessories - remote, low profile bracket, 3.5mm adapter etc.

Cons: None as I don't use any of the included software or remote.
No on board MPEG2 encoding

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace my Hauppauge HVR-2250. The 2250 is a dual tuner with a built in splitter but that led to a unacceptable level of signal loss. This single tuner has great signal sensitivity. It will pick up and tune all of the available OTA ATSC broadcast in my area without problem, something the 2250 couldn't do. I use a Logitech Harmony One and NextPVR with Kodi for my live tv streaming, therefore I can not comment on the included software or remote.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Has a remote

Cons: I installed it with no trouble as it is nothing but card insertion in a pc slot. I downloaded the software it worked somewhat for almost a day then began freezing up,dropping channels so I deleted the program and reinstalled several times, checked for updated drivers and software updates which they charge $9.95 for Win * version and still it will not run right. I have Windows 7 Pro and did not update. Check other reviews. Good Luck..

Other Thoughts: When setting up one of my other computers with XP on it I will try the card in it. Hopefully it will work in it. Probably wishful thinking.

5 out of 5 eggsComputer Time

Pros: Easy Hook up. I have 1 LCD and 1 LED TV but find myself on my computer more so having it to view television when doing whatever while on the computer for me is quiet cool. Software down load and hook up are easy and this functions as listed and recording shows is a snap. It was a better choice in my purchasing of that which I will use.

Cons: I can think of none. Possibly to cost less but otherwise I really cannot write anything negative on this product.

Other Thoughts: My other thoughts are why I did not do this sooner.

5 out of 5 eggsI'm impressed

Pros: Download the latest installation package from Hauppauge's website and you shouldn't have any problems in Windows 7. Both the drivers and Win8 software installed flawlessly. The picture quality is very good, as is the video capture quality when using the highest quality setting.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Out of the package, installed, up and running in about 20 minutes.

5 out of 5 eggsworks well, now I have a home made DVR!

Pros: Tuner is more sensitive than my TV's. Has handy signal strength function (using with Windows 7 Pro's built in Media Center). The included remote integrated with Media Center too, I think I had to download some utility from Hauppage to do that. And another remote I bought since the included one is so tiny, works fine (HAUPPAUGE A415-HPG)

Cons: The DVR software with the tuner crashed, etc. But Windows Media Center has worked quite well.

Other Thoughts: I'm using on a 7 year old Dell Dimension E520 and the recordings are very good in 1080p, but it could not play back without jerky video unless I set my tv output resolution down to 720, which still looks good. At 720 it works smooth, and a lot of tv shows are broadcast at 720. I did buy a $40 antenna, but now I get all the major broadcast stations and PBS fine, and I use HuluPlus for the shows we used to watch on cable. My cable bill went from 140 to 60 for high speed internet only and then $8 for Hulu Plus. Oh, kinda wished I had gotten the two tuner model now. And I bought a larger remote that works with the tuner too, a HAUPPAUGE A415-HPG for $5 on E-b-a_y.
