I really do like this thing. I'ts like having DVR sort of. It doesn't have the software as good as DVR where it can record the shows based on the show name but rather you gotta insert the times of when you when the recording to begin and end and the channel. The best part is that when it records you can set it up to record as video for the iPod. It's like making your own free movies and the quaility is great! Anyways, I would say get this product espeically if you have an iPod and wanna put videos on it. Oh, and another thing, don't let anyone on the computer while your video is recording. Well they could watch the show while it's recording but if it's recording silently(meaning it's in the toolbar but still recording) and someone is using the computer the video will be crappy...I missed some of Idol because of that...grrrr! So yeah, in all a good product!

Pretty good hardware, so-so software

by Jim Z on 2/19/2009

Easy to install (IBM laptop with Windows XP). The OK software is not intuitive or highly functional but is adequate. Very good tuner reception, even with tiny antenna provided. Nice for travel. Good value as I bought at about $50 with special deal/rebate. Read More
