  1. Its a ok card for the money, doesnt have hardware encoding; gonna need a decent processor to do the work, almost all tuner cards wont do dual tuning, as per record and watch another, the tuners are built into the board, windows media center 2005 have the HTPC features or power DVD, the tuner card will come with the software, a 7.1 capable soundcard and playback software will do fine :lol:
  2. Its ok, I have a 2000xp and its pretty good for recording tv but it is a cpu hog if you want good compression and the quality isn't the best or it might be the analog signal. for $20 i'd say get if ig you want to watch/recored tv on your pc.
  3. 2.9 overclocked athlon 64 x2
    512mb GFX card, its the 7900gto with 700mhz core 1.4ghzmem
    2gb dual channel 4-4-4-12 mem pc6400

    it dosetn really matter to me if its got hardware encoders cuz my cpu can handle it easily

    well quality is a matter to me,
    im looking to spend less then 70 bucks on the tv tuner as seeing that im gettin a 90 buck audio card n 90 more for the speaker 7.1 set up

    Which of these two is better for quality?

    ATI TV Wonder 2000

    Hauppauge WINTV401

    or should i still stick to the leadtek ?
    i mean im goin to watch it on my 19'' widescreen lcd xconnected on DVI i want sum quality but cheaply lol

    i just dont want to spend much :/ cant really afford much ..nething u guys suggest to get ?
  4. Happauge is a safer bet, software is usually good
