Performance

Okay, first off, I had a Packard Bell from 1995 with a TV Card that I feel was/is better then this. Not much, but better. However, with that being said, I do like this. Here is a portable solution that performs well even with a weak cable signal. Unlike a lot of negative reviews I read, my setup was very simple. No additional files needed to be downloaded from the internet. I haven't used it's "pseudo TIVO" function, but I presume it will be acceptable, though I didn't buy this device for recording. Also something that you hardly find mentioned anywhere is that this is also has a radio tuner that gets EXCELLENT reception even without the antenna attached. Overall, I wish that the audio would come though the USB and not require a seperate audio cable. I also wish this device would be powered by USB and not require an additional power adapter. The remote is also a little weak in signal strength and design, as well as the unit is a little slow to respond. It you are a major channel flipper you will notice this and it will become an annoyance. I was able to purchase this for $19 after rebate, and for a price like this, it was well worth it. For its regularly listed price, I would hold off because it's not very competitive pricing for the subpar quality.

FM radio and TV is really superb. May be in future versions, they will integrate sound also via USB so that it can be used with systems without a Line-IN
