Pros: The tuner works well with Windows Media Center and operates properly if viewing and recording through Windows Media Center.

Cons: Software is very crude and pretty much worthless.
Must agree with other reviews, product is way over priced.
Could not recommend this to a friend especially not to someone who was technically challenged.

Wont be buying their products again

Comments: Won't let me give it zero stars, but if I could I would. Also...and very important. I was supposed to get a $20.00 rebate on this thing. Followed the rebate instructions to the letter. Never got it. Won't be doing business with them again. Sorry. And again, not Newegg's fault. I bought it through a local competitor of theres in Minneapolis.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Customer,

Sorry to hear that you're experiencing problems with our TV tuner. The AVerTVHD Volar Max is only compatible with ATSC/Clear-QAM digital signals, if you're using a cable converter that converts digital signals into analog signals then the HD Volar Max will not be able to pick up any channels. For any addtional issues, you may submit a online support ticket at http://support.avermedia-usa.com

For rebate issues, you may check your rebate status at http://www.status-now.com or contact us at 1-800-953-3098.

Best,
AVerMedia Tech Support

Smooth - in my application

Comments: I love it. Absolutely would not change a thing. Solved a bunch of problems for us - but I have the 100.0000% perfect application.

Overpriced

Comments: The device works for catching some tv, the aerial is strong enough to get all the local channels. I just will weigh what updates are worth to me when I need to replace this. I may come back and buy another or I may find another vendor that updates a little more frequent. Of course I will not trade stability for more frequent updates. Nor would I like to see a simple interface become bloated and complicated like a lot of applications seem to do over their lifetime.

Good tuner, UI needs work

Comments: Is there any way to schedule "record all new episodes"? Easy enough to set up a weekly repeat recording but that's a time-based schedule, not a show-based one.

Wouldn't recommend

Pros: Quick install, when it works it works decently. Surprised at how well it receives signal. Installed it on my iMac and it worked well for a little while.

Cons: Died after 8 months but I didn't realize it until I used it next which was just after the year warranty was up. Obviously it is not something I use often, since there was a 4 month gap in between the time I used it last (when it was working) and when I used it next and it wasn't. For $50, I expect that it would work for longer than a year, especially for as little as I used it.

Great with Win7

Pros: It works perfectly with Windows 7. It works out of the box with Windows Media Center and it tunes in the ClearQAM channels from the cable provider.

Cons: I hear that the included software sucks.... I don't know I didn't fool with it. It doesn't tune analog channels but that's quite obvious if you can read the description.

Other Thoughts: I couldn't be happier with the reliability this offers in Win7, I do a lot of recording and it works perfectly 99% of the time, which is above average for modern computer equipment.

Aver what?

Pros: Works if you don't use Vanilla XP. Vista and Win7 media centers seem to handle this thing to a level of acceptance.

Cons: The person who designed the Aver Media Center should be shot before dawn! Click TV on the darned thing and it locks up the whole system. Even Task Manager can't kill it. And thats with the latest software and drivers from the Aver site as of 2 Feb. 2010.

Other Thoughts: This thing is worth about 25 bucks as is. If you pay more, the joke's on you. Now if they design an better hybrid media program for the device, then it may be worth the hard earned cash.
