My question is it has such horrible rating 2.7/5.. I looked on newegg.com and other review sites and found nearly all TV tuner cards have bad reviews. Why is this? I want to use it on a 226CW on XP PRO and have a Cable TV cable plugged directly into it. Do you think I will have problems with it?
I was thinking maybe the reviews are bad because people are trying to use the antenna it comes with and it's **** because the area they may live in. Which if this is true it won't affect me.
My only question is will i be able to get HD channels through my coax cable line? It has basic cable service, when I watch shows on discovery channel they say available in HD, so is that free and will be available when I get this tuner?
i've been trying to figure out similar answers. check out the thread i started called...card for hdtv and blue ray and the lot...and it should give you some answers. maybe you can add to it and we can all clear this up a bit.
You have to call your provider. If you connect the cable straight from the wall you might get some channels , probably some local, depending on your provider. If the cables goes from your set top box to your PC with a digital tv tuner you should be able to revieve HDTV but call your provider!
