I wish I had bought one of these years ago for my HTPC. The results are excellent in every respect as long as you use suitable software for viewing television on A PC such as DVB Viewer. My tuner card was not supplied with an installation CD so I had to download the latest drivers from the tbddtv.com site. The main disadvantage with this TV card is the lack of a remote control, but there is little else choice now that everyone uses USB dongles for watching TV on the PC. The few other examples of pci-e TV cards currently on sale that I could identify seemed to have inferior specifications. Works great under XP incidentally.
