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.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks, sort of

Pros: Does what it's supposed to, if you only use the included software.

Cons: Could not get it to work with Media Portal. There are only a few supported TV cards, and while this one was listed, the chipset turned out to be different from what was on the listing.

Also, could only get it to work with the analog sound ports. It would not work with the Optical port.

Other Thoughts: Replaced this one with a WinTV-PVR 500 MCE, which worked flawlessly. This card is fine if you plan to use the included software and analog sound. If you plan to use Media Portal, don't get this one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Its a cheap way to get tv onto your computer. I plug in my cable box into this, and can still use my normal remote. Its basically just letting my use my computer as a monitor. Can record tv, and capture screenshots. This is an awesome way to get tv shows on your computer, you can record, save, and watch them whenever you want.

Cons: I have dual monitors and if i have the tv on one monitor (fullscreen or not) and a fullscreen game on the left, it wont show the picture on the right screen. It will only play audio. When routing through my cable box, pressing buttons on my remote is delayed by a second, this isnt a real problem though.

Other Thoughts: I had some problems installing at first, but didnt realize i hadnt pushed it fully into the pci slot.

3 out of 5 eggsSlot Compatibility

Pros: Included Software - Bought this card to replace a different card that had fewer options.

Cons: Resource/Slot requirements of the card prevent me from using it. It has to be in the first open PCI slot, which doesnt work if you have a PCI-E Video Card that has a cooling fan (blocks the fan).

Other Thoughts: Had to run software first, install card, then complete ruinning installation after hardware install. This was a lot easier than the Leadtek card I have which came with drivers that did not work out of the box.
I'm going to look for another
card and can now use an HD type. Recomendations anyone?

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Now I can watch TV with my PC. But nothing to capture since local TV channel good to capture.

Cons: Can't control volume by its software application. And that is a problem at least for me. I have 2 sound cards, and the program doesn't let me control volume in any secondary sound card, so I have to move near the speaker to lower the volume

3 out of 5 eggsGood for dual-core?

Pros: Generates a great picture even if you are using air broadcast. Good for general TV use.

Cons: There is no hardware MPEG encoding. If you want to use this as a PVR then find something else. The picture would stutter doing anything else with my system. Maybe it would work good if you had a fast processor.

Other Thoughts: Newegg did the return on this product even though I was past my time. Newegg rocks and I will never shop anywhere else.

3 out of 5 eggsno hardware MPEG

Pros: short card is good for cases with limited space

Cons: no hardware MPEG encoding - uses your CPU's power to encode video whether watching or recording.

Other Thoughts: I wrote this review because some other reviews say it has this, others say it doesn't. The manufacturer's website says this model does NOT have a hardware encoder, so I believe it.

1 out of 5 eggsCheap Junk

Pros: None...Everything about this product is negative.

Cons: Poor documentation. Files referred to in the manual don't even exist on the installation CD. Instructions in manual don't correspond to the software supplied on CD. Interface for video functions is rinky dink. Cheap junk. Don't buy.

Other Thoughts: The installation manual reads like it was written in Chinese, then retranslated into russian by someone in eastern europe, and finally translated into English by someone who works for Dell Support in south east asia.
