3 out of 5 eggsComcast Complaints

Pros: A lot of complaints are about cable issues with Comcast. About 3 years ago Comcast scrambled all of there channels because alot of people were stealing their services. If you buy this product for cable you will need to purchase a descrambler from Comcast.

Cons: I have nothing to say about cons because I do not own this product model

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great on wins 8

Pros: Much bangs for your bucks. Compared with my buddy's over $100 ones, I've received closed to thirty local channels crystal clear just like theirs, with this compact simple products runnin under windows eight. Lovin it!

Cons: Original antenna sucks! Throw it away and get a powered one.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully sabrent update software for latest windows. It was quite a step to run it on this new windows 8.

1 out of 5 eggsSabrent

Pros: None.

Cons: Product is garbage. If I could give it zero stars, I would. Not worth it to send it back. The card never worked. I've had one other TV card by Sabrent, and it worked, but not very well. Sabrent is cheap for a reason. I'll never buy another product by this worthless manufacturer again.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat customer support

Pros: When I ran the CD after installing the card, I found part of the sticker with my license key was torn and it was missing the first few characters. I called the support number and had no wait at all. When he couldn't get me the my missing numbers, he gave me a whole new product key.

I bought the card to get rid of my TV to free up some space. Comes in even better than my TV did.

Cons: I have to boot to Ignore Digital Signature mode for it to run which is not a big deal but extra steps at boot.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking great on Windows 7

Pros: It's working, even here in my basement (which I didn't expect). It does work with Windows 7 Media Center. So far it's great.

Cons: Driver was a little odd, but I've seen worse. Honestly, I didn't install the

Other Thoughts: I don't know if this will be accepted, but the driver is hard to find, so the link is: http://www.sabrent.com/downloads.php Then search for "tv-pcidg" and download that file. Extract to a folder. If you've previously installed the other driver, go to driver manager and uninstall. Scan for hardware changes, right click the new device ("Microtune ATSC and NTSC Capture Device" in Sound, video and game controllers), choose not to automatically search, browse to your computer and point to the "Drivers\w7" within the folder that you extracted. It will take a minute, but it will work. Then you should have a tuner.

Or something like that. :)
