This review is from: DIAMOND TVW750PCIE ATI Theater HD 750 Tuner Card
PCIe, Digital and Analog tuner, plus FM radio.
AV stream capture, through video, S-Video, or coaxial.
Cheap, and works with the hardware component to upscale and accelerate video in WMC from all sources.
Works with X64 versions of Vista, 7, and 8.
included Arcsoft software is disappointingly slow on a fast computer.
Issues with trying to digitize old VHS tapes, would work perfectly for a couple seconds then go to static in the Arcsoft software.
FM doesn't work in WMC.
I didn't try to use the included remote as I bought one from rosewill for all of nine bucks that works very well, and has included mouse functions.
You can just download the driver package from the ATI/AMD website for this and it works perfectly fine with WMC without the need to install the bloated and slow arcsoft.
I am not sure if it is part of some attempt at copy protection that is preventing me from converting my old VHS tapes into digital copies, but it will not pass, I will find a way, I bought and own the movies, and new versions on DVD have "special content" that I don't want in my movies.
Came with a cute little set of rabbit ears, works for local channels just fine.
WMC will schedule recordings, and you can edit where it saves them at (not on my SSD's!!) but Arcsoft doesn't let you choose?
Well worth the price, especially with a good rebate, even with a few flaws.
