Great price, great compatibility with winxp... the shipping was ultra-fast (1 business day)And work really fine with different capture software. I'have rip a lot of vhs with this card, never had a graphic problem.
The cd that comes with it only have the driver. The capture software did'nt work and install well on my winxp. So you have to find an another capture software.
Great price, good quality, fast shipping.. So it's a good product for this price. If only it can came with a good capture software!! The only weekness! This review was modfied by poster p 01-30-09 05:02 AM This review was modfied by poster y 01-30-09 05:45 AM

Great price when it is on sale
Poor drivers and software
Does not work in Vista64
The only thing that i can watch in Vista Media Center is the blue screen saying "Loss of Signal". However, it works great in Windows Media Center 05'.

Standard Definition DVR Hardware
Does what it says it's supposed to do
No Remote Control
Not the greatest software package
Great purchase on sale. Keep in mind this is only the OEM version and doesn't include a remote control. Other than that it's great.

Supported by a wide variety of PVR software, easy to install, easy to use
FM tuner doesn't really work that well
I have been using Hauppauge PVR cards in my PVR for quite a few years now; I started with the PVR-350 cards, which lasted me about 3-5 years each. As they failed, I replaced them with these PVR-150 cards. I use the PVR-150 cards with Snapstream Beyond TV and they work great. The cards do tend to get a little hot, which I suspect contributes to a shorter lifespan, but $30 every 3 years isn't bad -- be sure to pick it up on sale. If you're buying it for the FM capability, watch out, it's not very good.

Easy Linux install. Hardware mpeg2 = low CPU load
No digital TV?
Put the PVR 150 into a Linux MythTV backend box. Now have streaming TV and recorded video to any PC or laptop in the house. Fits in the small Apex M100 chassy with an Intel Atom mini-ITX board. CPU load while streaming or recording TV is a low 4-6%!

I was under the impression that north american PVR 150 would also receive off-the-air (standard def) digital TV, but that is not (yet) working for me. Maybe I have a too crappy antenna or there is something else I don't understand. Or NCIX decided to offload old versions cheaply.

Actually works
Got this at a bargain price. It works. Even under Vista Windows Media Center. I lost my cable so the only reception is air using the supplied wire antenna which is o.k. for 3 channels. Can't compare what picture quality is like if one had cable, or a better antenna.

Experience: 7 Days

Easy Set-up
Low price (bought i $24.99)
So so picture quality
I would definitely purchase this again at $24.99. The software included is easy to use and set-up, although it is pretty basic and I will probably look for better software to replace it in the future.

Price & Quality
I picked up this tuner for $35. What an absolute steal! I have 3 of these in my Media Centre box. Stupid simple to set up, and quality of picture is very good.

Easy to install and configure
None so far
Purchased this card on sale ($34.99) back in October to use in a HTPC. Currently running Win MCE 2005 and had no problems installing it. Simply installed the drivers (no bundled software) and Media Center was able to detect the PVR150 and take care of the rest. So far so good.

Works well under Windows...curious to see how this fares under Linux and Mythtv.

-Easy to install
-Good detection by Windows
-Not very good software bundled
-64bit/4GB+ RAM issues still exist with drivers from Hauppauge.
It's not a bad card by any means. A pain in the butt sometimes with Vista 64 bit and 4GB of RAM- Media Center has a horrible picture, so I'm stuck using the WinTV program, which has far less features and it's interface is pretty ugly.

All in all though for the money it works quite well.
