I purchased this item to put into my desktop in an effort to get rid of my Tivo. The card installation was simple and the driver installation was great. Windows Media Center had no problems configuring the card to capture the signal and I plan on ordering another one to add an additional tuner to the box. The computer performance hasn't suffered at all when the card is capturing. I highly recommend this product.

Great product w/easy setup

on 5/29/2008

Running Vista Home Premium 64-bit. Installed the card and the USB remote sensor and booted the PC. Both devices were recognized and I didn't have to install any external drivers. TV card and remote were found during the setup of the Vista Media Center software and fully operational in about 5 minutes. Great product. Doesn't get much better than this. Also, kudos to Buy.com. My first time to shop with them and it was a great experience. Thanks! Read More
