It works just fine, but...

by purpleroba on 7/20/2007

<p>I used to have a desktop which had a TV tuner card. Even though the TV tuner card was a cheap one (<$40), in those days, I had no complains. It displayed, captured, and recorded images just fine. With this product, there are some issues on these basic functions.</P> <p>TV display is just fine. If you watch tennis or something where objects move fast, then you may see some delay of movement. The quality of images is, well, not as good as you see on a regular TV, but I can tolerate.</P> <P>Capturing images is OK. I felt there is a delay, but it happens with others too.</P> <P>Recording video is less than OK. Even with the best quality setting, resulting video is too choppy to enjoy.</P> <P>Software included does whatever it claims to do, but I've seen better ones...</P> <P>Having said that, it may be due to my laptop which has rather poor video quality too. It has 2 Ghz AMD prosessor and 1.5 G of RAM, but video is shared with RAM. I wonder if I have better laptop.</P> <P>Since I don't watch TV very often, I'm OK with this product, but I wish it was better.</P>
