Consumer Alert

Consumer Alert
This television receiver has only an analog broadcast tuner and will require a converter box after February 17, 2009, to receive over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the Nation's transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and similar products. For more information, call the Federal Communications Commission at 1-888-225-5322 (TTY: 1-888-835-5322) or visit the Commission's digital television website at: www.dtv.gov

4 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: Does what its supposed to. Would not recomend for console to monitor. TV works fine.

Cons: Software can be tricky - Recommend downloading latest version from ati site. First learn how to install ATI drivers, cause its tricky. Does get a little hot, but nothing to be concerned over.

Other Thoughts: Most of the people who wrote negative comments dont know what they're talking about. This is not an HDTV tuner...Its gonna be normal resolution tv..READ THE BOX..Of course their will be latency...Its external.. THIS IS USB 2...Of course its gonna suck if u insert into a USB 1...12mbps vs 384mbps - do the math..

Pros: i can watch tv... sort-of.

Cons: it works but the software that comes with it doesnt. even the software on the web-site sucks. the picture quality isnt very good, but i guess that might just be the usb.

Other Thoughts: i have a pci tuner card now that i like alot.

1 out of 5 eggsIt eat all resource

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Just as Advertised.....

Pros: Works just as advertised. Picture quality was right up tehre with other USN 2 Tuners I own. I have been using it for over a year now and it has only let me down once and that was my vault for an issue I wasnt aware of. See other thoughts for that info... It also works great with my nVidia card so it can work with cards other than just the ATI cards/chipsets.

Cons: None - I just wish people would give it 5 stars when they say it works as advertised but they then rate it a 1 cuz it didnt do MORE than what they expected. Rate the product based on what the MFG says it will and can do.

Other Thoughts: My only problem was I had 12 USB harddrives hooked up and had issues with this product and finally I saw a little window displayed for about 2 seconds that said Low USB Bandwidth so I removed the newest 2 hard drives and sure enough, it then worked flawless once again. So bottom line is that USB claims you can have all these devices hooked to one system but when it comes to video then it won't work properly since video is a bandwidth hog.

3 out of 5 eggsOverheats!!!

Pros: I recorded off of cable, VHS, and more composite devices. It works ok. The camera sensitivity feature is AWESOME!! You can use this for home security when it's not recording.

Cons: Horrible VHS recording. Ok for Hi8 camcorder. OVER HEATS to the point where it is hot to the touch everywhere on it. Easily make a little kid cry. It just made me not want to hold it more then a couple seconds as I checked how hot it got.

Other Thoughts: It needs a type of cooling system and for some reason it switches between coaxial and composite when my bro was trying to record. I have yet to see it do that.

4 out of 5 eggsNever use software provided

Pros: I can play my Playstation 2 flawlessy with this tv tuner using Dscaler as one reviewer suggested. Everyone who gave this a bad review are using the software provided. The one thing I learned in my purchasing history is never use the software providedd

Cons: Can't plug it in to my tv and computer at same time.

Other Thoughts: Download Dscaler if you already own this. Trust me it makes it a really good device and perfect for my PS2. hopefully people won't look this one over

2 out of 5 eggsPoor Product

Pros: Does what it says, Was easy to return. Simple Installion.

Cons: Severe latency with inculded software; Pretty Hot, and not in the good way; Matieral feels cheap; Can only hook one VCR/Console to it; Picture qaulity was underwhelming even on 'HD' channels.

Other Thoughts: For doing something like using a game console the response time is terrible -- roughly somewhere in between 1-3 seconds. Ironically, on the return of this product i bought a television from my local target for less, and it works better in every single respect except for the fact that i can't hook it too my computer.

4 out of 5 eggsPlease use Dscaler with this Product

Pros: Great response time for an external tuner as long as you don't use the Ati Multimedia center.

Cons: Ati Software is lame, please use another software. I use Dscaler.

Other Thoughts: If you use dscaler you can play any games without the 1sec delay cause by the Multimedia center tv program. On thing is that you won't receive any sound from the device. Work around is to buy and Stereo to RCA adapter and plug it into the Line In or Microphone port then set dscaler to use that port. Lastly you must set Deinterlaycing to odd or even scanline in the dscaler deinterlaycing menu.

3 out of 5 eggsPut the money towards a tivo or tv.

Pros: If you need to watch tv on your monitor because you don't have room for a 13" tv, and you don't care about recording quality, then this is an ok product.

Cons: TV Guide+ doesn't automatically download in the background. Have to manually download and it ties the tv up for like 5 minutes. Can't unschedule tv recordings. Voice and audio get out of sync real easily when recording shows, or if you are doing too many things.

Other Thoughts: Save your money. If you want to record tv shows, get a tivo series 2. If you want to watch tv at your desk, buy a tv or a monitor with a tv tuner.

1 out of 5 eggsThe WORST Windows yet!!!

Pros: I tried hard, but couldn't find any...

Cons: Where do I start??? If you have satellite tv (dish network/directv etc), you cant use the guide! Costs too much for something that has A LOT of room to improve...S-L-O-W on a computer with a Pentium 4 3.20GHz cpu, 2GB RAM, and 200GB Hard Drive...? In fact, MCE is slower on that computer than my 4-yr old Dell 2350 is with Windows XP.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't take a genuine retail copy of Windows XP Media Center Edition if someone PAID me to take it...It's still not worth the trouble!!!
