4 out of 5 eggsfair

Pros: i got it for free so i cant complian. i need a better antenna for the local chanels but the nearest local came in crystal clear

Cons: if you plug an xbox to the coaxial, you'll have a .5 second lag. i did that to record my xbox, but didn't workout with the gameplay so behind.

5 out of 5 eggsNice tuner

Pros: Had some issues adding to existing system, but it worked fine. For other reasons I decided to reformat HD and reload OS, and it had zero issues.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Worked great from the get-go! No issues on my P5Q-Deluxe with a PCI-e HD5870, PCI-e Auzen X-Fi Forte and this on Windows 7 x64. I do not have HD cable yet, and standard cable can be a little fuzzy...but when sitting back and relaxing it's perfect! I did try out the HD QAM broadcast stations out and the picture was amazing!

Cons: None in all honesty, for the price I paid with a free remote, it's well worth it if you want an all-in-one entertainment center. I turned my gaming rig into a TV and radio with this unit.

4 out of 5 eggsClear picture

Pros: Havent had any problems with picture clearity . Picks up
all my local channels and great picture on HD .I am using a plain old flatwire antenna to receive all my channels and
FM radio .Those that are having lines in their pictures must
be getting intefernce from a nearby source .

Cons: Doesn't like going into standby mode .I have to reboot PC
in order to function properly or picture will frame . Also antenna input settings wont always stay at digital ,will
be at analogue at times when first running program.

Other Thoughts: For the money though if its a TV tuner you want in a PC.
then get this one . For the small problems i have with the
tuner it does an overall good job . And the DVD burning
software that comes with it does a good job . I have Roxio 8 and there are no software conflicts between the 2

3 out of 5 eggsThis one works

Pros: As always New Egg is worthy of five stars. The three stars are simply for the product.

Cons: It works but the video is not all that great. Kind of like poor qualtiy analog. Guess that's why we still have a TV.

Other Thoughts: THe first one was DOA but Newegg quickly hooked me up with a replacement. I bought it to replace my Haupage 150 that wouldn't work with WIN 7, 64.

2 out of 5 eggsCould be good...

Pros: unfortunately, nothing really...

Cons: Has that annoying all white distortion thingie others have previously stated. The wife has missed a couple of must see (for her anyway...) TV shows because of the "it just stopped recording, or something" problem. And we all know if the boss aint happy, you aint happy!

Other Thoughts: Had high hopes, and initially all was well. Both tuners worked fine, loved having free OTA HD along with cable TV. But after a month or so of use, the problems that others have come across set in. I am glad I held off making this review after reading other reviews about these issues, because this review would have been more positive than the card deserves. Am looking for a replacement card.

5 out of 5 eggs3 for 3

Pros: I have now installed 3 of these on Win7 64-bit machines. Flawless performance in every case. The "Green Button" Windows Media Center remote controller that is sometimes included with this is a perfect addition.

Cons: Not a big deal, but there are actually 2 tuners on this card - an analog and a digital. You need two coax input cables, so use a splitter.

In one installation, I couldn't get any digital channels. An error message indicated the signal strength was too low. But investigation showed that the home's input cable had been spit about a dozen ways, so the signal truly was too low. An amplifier fixed it.

Other Thoughts: This tuner is great when used with WMC and analog/unencryped digital cable. It's an amazing bargain when Newegg has it on sale with the RC included.

2 out of 5 eggsNice picture, but annoying buzzing in white scenes

Pros: Regular cable tv (non digital box) picture is nice, good colors.
Nice black pcb.
Was detected no problem with the newest updates etc from Microsoft which I was a bit worried about at first, but it installed no problem (in Win 7 64 bit with media center.)

Cons: Not a true dual tuner, so can't watch tv while recording another tv show (regular cable tv.)
Makes a very annoying buzzing/shrill noise and garbled lines in picture during all/mostly white scenes watching tv which I had read about in the past and was hoping to avoid, but alas mine does it too. Very annoying so will return the card as it's a defect and doesn't work properly. We have had the cable company check the signal etc and all is good, so it's the card...
