    Pros
    work, recording a good quality
    Cons
    no picture on the second monitor
    Summary
    I cannot send the tv picture on my screen #2. a big disapointment. I was able to do this with a x800 all in wonder! why going back? Win7 x64. It work very well on the screen #1. I'm pasing trough a decoder, then in this card s-video input. Even going directly in the coax input without decoder give the same result. If you have only one monitor, it will work.

    Pros
    Integrates seemlessly with Windows Media Centre
    Great picture quality
    Closed captioning works well
    Cons
    None
    Summary
    This card works flawlessly with Win7 64 bit. Drivers installed automatically (did not bother with supplied ATI install disk). TV capture quality in WMC is excellent, probably better than the X800 All-in-wonder AGP that I upgraded from. Media Centre software is very user friendly, have yet to determine whether some recorded shows are protected from burning to DVD (Microsoft apparently bowed to pressure from Movie industry in copyright protection). If so, may be forced to use ATI software.

    well the only good thing about it is that it enables me to watch TV on my computer, nothing more
    Cons
    had to move my giant video card to the second slot in order to have this card to fit
    kind of pissed me off but what can I do...

    I'm just cheap enough to use my computer as a gaming machine, working machine and a TV set at the same time.
    It's not bad though.

    Pros
    Great price. Good analogue NTSC quality
    Cons
    software install is time consuming.
    Summary
    Bought this onsale for $39.99 to take the place of my AIW9600XT because I have at last switched to at PCIe system. Picture quality is great. Have not tried the ATSC tuner, but once I get an antennae am looking forward to OTA HD TV.

    Pros
    PCIE, 2 tuners, HD
    Cons
    Could be a little fiddly to get the software working for some.
    Summary
    So far, my TV Wonder 650 is working very well. I had some problems getting the drivers installed using the included CD but got it working AFTER installing the most up to date ATI Catalyst Media Center and then going back to install from disc. I then wrote over the CD drivers with the up to date ones after it was working.

    The included software is OK, though I'd prefer WMC.

    Picture quality is pretty good, the audio is better. I have read, however, that there are instructions in on of the ATI Forum threads for increasing picture quality (havent had the chance to try).

    Overall, not a bad tuner.

    Integrates with Windows Media Center
    Great image quality
    Cons
    None
    Summary
    Great TV tuner. Only using the analogue tuner for now, but the image quality is much better than my old all in wonder and it integrates flawlessly with WMC

    Pros
    video capture quality
    Cons
    Setup can be tricky, Win 7 only recognizes one tuner
    Summary
    Got this card to work with Win7 64 bit no problem. Win7 installed the drivers automatically. Only problem was select ing the tuner, it did not pick the tuner up by default, so had to select  it manually in Media Centre. TV capture quality is outstanding, much better than the ATI, or Power Cinema software. I much prefer Media Centre over ATI's software as well, in terms of ease of use and seamless integration. Microsoft has finally done something right.

    Pros
    Picture quality is clear
    Cons
    Drivers are bad/hard to get for Windows 7 64-bit.
    Summary
    Purchased this to use with Windows 7 64-bit. The box indicates that it works with Windows 7. Windows 7 drivers don't exist. ATI website indicates drivers will be available Q1 2010.

    Vista driver works but are somewhat flakey. When the picture is displayed it is clear. Drivers appear to be locked if the anolog signal for a channel isn't purfect while it looks for the best quality. Don't have HD so I couldn't test the HD tuner. Couldn't get it to work in Windows Media Center, only in the ATI Catalyst software provided to watch TV.

    Overall, the drivers and support for Windows 7 need to be increased.

    Pros
    Good quality picture, recognized in Windows 7 with Vista drivers, mpeg hardware encoding
    Cons
    In Win 7 you currently have to use Vista drivers for it to work
    Summary
    Bought this only having Microsoft/ATI dump support for the 550 version in Windows 7 (it worked fine in Win7 beta). Good quality picture, low profile. Came with free remote during a sale and it worth it just for the remote!

    Pros
    Very easy to use, good broadcast  quality.
    Cons
    It refuses to do the dishes for me.
    Summary
    This card has been working quite well for me. The broadcast  quality is good. If you are going to try this card though, make sure you're in a location where you will get a good signal (if you are using over the air signals). I bought an antenna with this, and down in the basement where I use my computer, the antenna will hardly pick up a signal. When hooked up to the larger antenna installed in the attic, it does great.
