Great tuner card 07/13/2007
I am using Windows Vista Multimedia. Was a plug and play install. Basic cabel (about 70 channels) were recongnized and came in right away. Over the air HDTV from 40 miles away in two locations about 80degress in speartion comes in perfect (I have 7 stations with signal strength 4). BTW the Vista mulitmedia setup for HDTV is excellent. The signal strenth meter included helps you fine tune your antenna direction.
I have had this card for about 6-7 months. I bought it when it first came out.
I can record 1HDTV station and one cabel station at the same time but my single processor amd 3800 works at 100%. I suggest you use a dual processor unit. Also, I use DVRMSToolbox to strip out the commercials from tv shows. It works great about 80% of the time.
