    This TV card is good but don't come with any software or drivers outside of the standard plug-n-play built into most OS's. For me next time i will spend a little bit more and get a factory boxed card with the drivers and software. Over all for the price its worth it.

    Hello everyone. This card is very good at what is intended to do, and at a very good value. I recently lost my job so I had to return my 60" HDTV to the leasing place and must now run all my entertainment through my PC. Not so fun. This card allows you to watch cable television and play game consoles on a PC, which is awesome, but there are some things you should know. First: The TV tuner will ONLY work in a WINDOWS XP 32bit operating system. Second: The drivers and WinTV2000 app must both be installed for the computer to "see" the TV card. Third: WinTV2000's (the TV viewing program) picture quality is awful. Use DScaler instead. Google it. Forth: Consoles will hook up to it, but are a tad fuzzy. Nothing horrible. Fifth: Occasionally, some channels will have a "low" or "no signal". Usually not a problem. Also, Hauppauge, the manufacturer of this card, is VERY prompt in replying to help e-mails. I was trying to figure this thing out on my own (assuming that support would be awful), I sent a desperate e-mail and got a reply in a few hours!

    This card is excellent. I first saw this at a customer's office, and had to move it to his new computer.The new drivers and application downloadable from the web, were great. This card is smooth in operation and very quick. It offloads the main processing from the computer's processor. I threw away my USB TV tuners after using this card.

  • It works! Yeeeha
    Verified Purchase

    A perfect addition to my multiple screen computer system. I used to watch my TV through a mirror on the opposite side of my bedroom. I live in a two bedroom apt and I'm renting the master bedroom suite. So space is at a minimum. Now I can fill my third monitor right in front of me or if I'm busy I can shrink it to a small portion of the screen. Also I can select movies on my DVD player. It's perfect. :)

  • Linux Friendly
    Verified Purchase

    Even though it says Win it works with Linux. I had to just not put it next to the Nvidia card that is running my computer. I put it on a lower PCI slot and Lubuntu 15.04 detected it in settings. I have been wanting to try out Mythbuntu control center as the Hauppauge has the ability to turn your computer into a television. Now I can have video and audio for legacy hardware that doesn't tie up my HDMI ports on my computer.

  • Dead On Arrival, none of the hauppauge 44801 drive
    Verified Purchase

    Dead On Arrival, none of the hauppauge 44801 drivers or software work. If that isn't bad enough, they first shipped me a Dell docking station before I complained, now they sent me a non working TV tuner card.
