Pros
PCIe slot compatible
Easy install
Dual tuner
Quality construction including digital tuners (2)
Cons
No remote
Summary
Absolutely necessary for crammed SLI boards such as 680i that leave you with only one useable PCI slot and that probably has a sound card in it.
This was painlessly installed and once the PowerDVD decoder was loaded, Windows MCE quickly discovered the tuner and was up and running. Total time approximately 15mins.
A very reasonable price for a dual tuner unit and the lack of a remote is not a great loss as most proprietory remotes lack full functionality in MCE anyway. A good MS MCE remote can be had for around $40.00

Comment: While using a PC-based TV tuner always involves certain compromises in quality, we found the image quality of live and recorded programming to be excellent, with no discernable difference between the live and the recorded signals.
