This review is from: AVerMedia H826-AK AVerTV Hybrid Volar Max - TV Tuner Kit for Windows
Pros: Reasonable price, very compact and portable.
Cons: Does not include any software to actually use it. I downloaded the driver and Averymedia software from their website, but the software says no tv tuner found. A search of their support forums says the "Starter kit" version of this tuner is not compatible with their software, and only works in Media center, so perhaps that's what this is.
However, Media center does not recognise the tuner either.
Other Thoughts: unfortunately, I took a hammer to it, so I can't return it. I also bought 2 more elsewhere, 1 the "starter kit" version, and 1 of the "full version" of the card.
Same results with all 3 cards, on 2 computers, 1 running Windows 7 64 bit, an one computer running Windows 2000. Cards are recognised by Windows, but not by Media Center or Averymedia software.
Other Thoughts: I build all of the computers for my company, and have been using these in P4 systems for awhile. These are better than most Muxxin, Coxxxir, etc products that cost more. We have only had one module fail, but PDP Systems requires a ridiculous amount of info, including the serial number (which is not printed on the module), the origional reciept, you have to fax it in, etc before they will honor their warrantee. We met all the requirements, but they ignore all requests for warantee service. Even Kingston gives you quick returns. Luckily PDP's fake warrantee is not needed often.READ FULL REVIEW
