5 out of 5 eggsWorks great with XP 64bit

Pros: Main one is it works with XP 64bit Windows - not aware of any other cards (besides the theater 650) that work with it. You need to download the drivers directly from ATI and then install the excellent PowerCinema software off the disk. Great picture quality, easy to install and set up (once you install the 64 bit drivers) and has remote. Very nice TV/media card.

Cons: None so far except program guide difficult to use. I don't use it, so no biggie.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Tuner to Buy

Pros: The best image quality of the analog tuners. Uses the excellect ATI Theater 550 chip. Works very well.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If your looking for an analog TV tuner, this is the one to buy. Use this card with Media Center or BeyondTV and you will be very happy. Ignore the CD that comes with it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat TV tuner!

Pros: Easy to install - no weird connections to your sound card or motherboard. Great SDTV picture! Works with my MCE 2005.

Cons: No HDTV. IR receiver's USB cable is not very long.

Other Thoughts: I didn't use the software CD, I downloaded the latest drivers for the 550 PRO from the ATI website, and am using MCE 2005 to control it.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Card

Pros: Near DVD Quality recordings using the composite input. Using it in a P4 2.8 ghz machine, it uses less than 10% cpu while capturing. FM Radio and remote are nice addons to a great tuner.

Cons: Supplied software doesnt make use of the "Record" button on the remote, yet.

Other Thoughts: I'd suggest, like others have, that you use it with beyondtv. Really easy to set up and you can manage recordings from anywhere.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Tuner!

Pros: Picture quality is great. After much research this is definitely the tuner to buy. the ATI 550 chip is the only chip you should consider at this point until the 650 comes out.

Cons: None with the hardware. Don't waste your time with the included software. Just Download the latest drivers and use MCE if you have it, or buy BeyondTV software if you have xp like i did. BeyondTV works great with this card and it is the premiere DVR software currently out there.

Other Thoughts: A great choice to turn your PC into a DVR or for use in a current Media Center PC. Highly recommended.

4 out of 5 eggsGood but could be better

Pros: Cheap
Comes with remote
FM tuner
Good signal quality
Works with Windows Media Center

Cons: Quiet audio
Included software is garbage, install drivers from ATI's site.
Signal is laggy

Other Thoughts: Don't get this if you want to play videogames using your PC's monitor, or intend to have your consoles hooked up through your media center. The signal is delayed by 1-2 seconds, making gameplay nearly impossible.
Overall good card, but there's a lot of room for improvement.

Pros: This is one of the very few TV card with 64 bit drivers available from the manufacturer. Once downloaded, they install and work excellently.

Cons: component video audion cable is cheesey....
