Used it once, I made a mistake buying this because it wasn't what I needed in the first place so I ended up selling it for $120 and lost a good $50.
Like I said, I've only tried it for one day and the results weren't the ones I was looking to get as I've Bell's Fibe and wanted to watch TV on my PC but finally the only thing I needed was an LCD monitor with at least one HDMI input. At first guess, I thought I would need a PC TV Tuner but then I understood that the Bell's received was the only thing I needed and plug it directly to the computer's monitor via HDMI. (Can be any monitor with HDMI you don't have to buy a TV Tuner monutor).
This card is pretty awsome and works great under 7 X64 with a standard definition shaw direct box and the ir blaster speed is as quick as the original remote which is a bonus! reasons of purchase: is because the remote was black LOL
Currently using this in MediaPortal without any major issues. One great thing about this card is that it is a dual tuner card. I'm only using analog right now, so I can record one channel while watching another at the same time. The channel changing in MediaPortal is a bit slow, however, but it's not a dealbreaker for me.
The remote stopped working after 5 days, wouldn't work in both Media Center and their software WinTV. The video quality is, quite frankly, awful when compared to what I get on my home television. Sure it's Analog, but the quality is just awful over this card. Even though the signal I receive is in widescreen, this card refuse to put the video in 16:9, I'm stuck in 4:3 with black bars on all sides, just terrible.
I was going to buy this from NCIX but my wife bought it for me as a surprise. I'm so happy with it I decided to write review anyway. We have a PVR at home I'm happy with and this device matches it step for step at a fraction of the cost, not to mention the storage room I have on computer to record, store and play back movies. Could have saved a few bucks if I bought it here but the wife wanted to contribute to my new build ! Gotta love her for that!!!
