Performance

I am not really satisfied with the picture quality of this tuner while viewing. It appears washed out, however the recorded picture is much improved and I could live with that if the sound was not so out of sync. It appears the longer it records the more out of sync it gets so I can't correct it with my dvd authoring software. The problem I'm trying to correct now is not everything it records is out of sync. I'm running dual core intel and not using the computer for anything else while recording so I am really confused by this. I don't know if it is a software or hardware problem.

-Willis H. McDonald quote

Just a heads up, this is an analog tuner and will only work for about 1 year in th US. You'll need a digtal ATSC tuner starting next February.
