Ease of Use

The only problem I have is the software that came with it doesn't support Dolby digital. It even states it on their website forum. However when you play back a recorded show on windows media player, the dolby is there. The dvr part works well and allows you to put the recorded files on a mapped drive. Some dvr software doesn't allow you to do that such as beyond tv. One other note, I couldn't get beyond tv or wintv to recognize it. Haven't tried media center. Also, the antenna has a strong magnet on the base so watch where you put it.

What plug and play is all about. Have used on 3 computers and works better than the TV card built-in my new HP desk top. Found more channels than my converter box and outside antenna in the attic on my home TV. Could not ask for more.

Maybe I'm confused

on 1/5/2009

Not sure what's going on--we're in a pretty urban area here but all I can pick up at my office is 4 channels--none of which I've ever heard of--a kids' channel, shopping, Christian, and one other I forget. At home, I can't get any channels. No major networks or local channels. It was easy to install and the picture and quality are pretty good but I thought I was going to be able to see all broadcast channels. Maybe it's the antenna. Read More

Great Product

by Raghu Krishnan on 1/26/2009

I bought this TV Tuner to use with Laptop and it was only after I received it did I realize that it picks up only HD Channels. I was a little disappointed at first but looking at the quality of just the FREE HD Channels I was really really impressed. The antenna that comes with it picks up all the local free HD Channels without any problem. I plugged my non-HD cable into it and once it had no problem scanning the free HD Channels that I was receiving without an HD subscription. The only issue I had (and resolved, which might help others) was that in 1 or 2 of the channels the picture would be fine at the start and then it would become choppy. But then I went into the Root Settings and turned of "deinterlacing" which seemed to fix the problem. You can also experiment by turning On/Off the Hardware accelerator. This product is great for its price. I feel like I have an HDTV with this plugged into my laptop. I would definitely recommend this to people who travel and want to watch TV while you are out.
