1 out of 5 eggsThis card is worthless!

Pros: The card looks nice and the specifications sound good...

Cons: After numerous attempts to resolve the problems with this card (driver issues, lack of MCE compatibility even though VisionTek tech support said that it will work, causes my computer to blue-screen and restart, etc.). Overall I have not been able to get this card to work since the day I got it several months ago.

Other Thoughts: Do not get this card. Actually, it seems that these types of problems are endemic of any ATI TV Wonder HD 600 (PCI-E, PCI, and USB). Get the Hauppauge cards. I use those most of the time but thought it might be worth trying something different just for the heck of it...

3 out of 5 eggsIt's ok...

Pros: The price is fairly low.

Cons: Came with an IR remote but no sensor, so the remote is worthless.

Other Thoughts: Spend a little more money and get something much better..

4 out of 5 eggsWorks OK, I guess

Pros: Install was simple. Software intalled fine and worked easily.

Cons: Kind of slow, changing channels takes a few seconds. Haven't spent much time on the epg sno not sure how that is.

Other Thoughts: First time using video capture so I have nothing to compare it to. Not using a great video card so maybe my output would improve with better one. Plan to build high end htpc sson so testing this on my old 3.0 GHZ P4,D875 MB,2GB Ram and XFX 5200 Video card.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Fine for me

Pros: Works as advertised, works great for transferring old VHS tapes to digital.

Cons: Had to apply hotfix from MS (not available thru windows updaet, had to make specail request and get it emailed to me) in order to get x64 Vista to recognize the analog tuner.

Other Thoughts: recieved as Christmas present, I proabably would have gotten something else if I had gone shopping for one, but this works great for what I want (occasional TV in my office and old home movie conversion)

1 out of 5 eggsPlug and Pray returns with this card

Pros: Visiontek says this card has HDTV capture capability.

Cons: Difficult or impossible to install. Not recognised by ATI Catalyst Media Center (?!?)

Other Thoughts: My previous Visontek capture card worked well. Not the case with this one.

SYSTEM:

ASUS PKE MB
INTEL DUO QUAD CORE 2.4GHZ
2GB DDR2 800
WD CAVIAR 500GB HD 7200
SAPHIRE 2600XT 286MB VIDEO
VISONTEK TV CARD

Catalyst software does not load properly. After over 20 man hours of installation attempts, updating drivers, researching solutions, etc... it STILL does not work as a TV tuner.

WORST CARD EVER. DO NOT BUY THIS! Choose a non-ATI TV capture card.
