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.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little fella

Pros: quick and easy. if you can shove in ANY other peice of equipment onto a mother board you can do this.

cheapest and one of the best upgrades you can get for a windows xp media center mechine.

Cons: dont expect to play games though this, the system kinda lags.

Other Thoughts: i didnt even need to bother with the installation software, just ran the cd-rom that came with it, ran through the media center start up and BAM done no problem

5 out of 5 eggsworks great

Pros: i can now watch tv on my computer

Cons: the disc that came with the package didn't install correctly so i had to goto the official website and get the installer there. if your gonna record video games don't use the software included use a 3rd party software cause you get a 3 second delay

Other Thoughts: quality is good works in windows media center

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than I ordered!

Pros: Great quality. Works with windows MCE and Vista.
This card came with the FM radio portion too... i don't think it is supposed to, so added benefit there.

Cons: None really.

5 out of 5 eggsMythTV Rocks

Pros: I purchased this card to use in my new MythDora DVR and it worked right out of the box with minimal setup. :)

Cons: None, works perfect.

Other Thoughts: I purchased the 274, but newegg sent me the 1042. I didn't have a problem with this, because it appears that the cards are identical with the exception of the FM tuner...

4 out of 5 eggsDecent card

Pros: Handles low signal quality well, good value, good at dealing with low-signal static, works perfectly with WinXP MCE.

Cons: Some video "shadow" artifacts, most likely due to low-signal issues, but it is better than static. I am still hopeful I can get rid of it.

4 out of 5 eggsMeh, good enough

Pros: WARNING: After ordering this card from NewEgg I got a slightly different model. I still received a PVR-150-MCE, but mine has an FM tuner. I'm reviewing what I received.

All features work in both linux and Vista Ultimate. It'll do for converting all my old VHS cartoons to files. Also, the version I got has no problem running in my system along side 4 gigs of RAM.

Cons: WARNING: After ordering this card from NewEgg I got a slightly different model. I still received a PVR-150-MCE, but mine has an FM tuner. I'm reviewing what I received.

Image could be a little better, but it seems good for the price.

Other Thoughts: WARNING: After ordering this card from NewEgg I got a slightly different model. I still received a PVR-150-MCE, but mine has an FM tuner. I'm reviewing what I received.

This'll be my first tuner card -- can't wait to get ffmpeg compiled to use all of my Q6600 so I can really test this thing out.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for those not looking for the best.

Pros: It works nicely. Good, clean install. No problems with signal. Good sound and picture.

Cons: Software may take some time to get working correctly. Also, software is fairly basic without many features. Video capture is not so great for me.

Other Thoughts: This product is good for those who don't need the best. Although video quality could improve, this is an excellent product for the price. Media Center would probably improve performance/compatibility.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Card for my Media Server

Pros: Easy Installation. Work fine after driver install.

Cons: Software used to view TV on disk would not work, had to download software from Hauppauge website directly,

Other Thoughts: This card is great for capturing data from video sources and turning it to digital files. Problem is the software as far as I can tell doesn't support DivX encoding. So if that is your intention look into other solutions I use total video converter, and it seems to do the trick.

3 out of 5 eggsCapacitors may get in the way

Pros: I ordered this on Monday afternoon. Newegg had it shipped Monday night, it arrived on Wed. Decent priced.

Cons: To install card, I Would've had to bend some capacitors on my motherboard. Didn't want to risk it, so I RMA'd it for a different interface: PCI-E x1.

5 out of 5 eggsTV on my computer!

Pros: MPEG-2 capture card. Hauppauge.

Cons: Not as good reception as my older PVR-250. SD broadcasts will also end in the next couple of years.

Other Thoughts: Still a good card, but the FCC is going to make it obsolete.
