The Hauppauge WinTV 250 is a lot more expensive than the WinTV 150, but the quality on the 250 is fairly good. With the nVidia DVD Decoder, you can change saturation, hue, brightness, and contrast to offset the slightly oversaturated nature of this tuner. Text (such as that which appears in news headlines) and other details are decent, but definitely can be distinguished. Added FM tuner is also a plus. Overall, easy to set up, although finding the proper drivers online can take a while. Best of all, it works with Windows MCE 2005.
