Rather Good I Say!
Reviewed by Chris Frenzel. Review Posted 14/06/2007

Expected it to be not that good, but after upgrading one of my workstations to vista, and having to change the audio card, get a new graphics card I found the TV card still did not work so a new one of them was required – what to get? (Apart from a new PC in the first place) Well this was cheap so I went for one. And it’s pretty good but as all digital receivers “You Must Have A Good Signal” and the latest drivers! The app that drives it is the same as for all the Hauppauge cards so if you don’t like it you won’t like anything from them and I agree it has some shortfalls but it’s good enough for me. So the idea that you can stick it in your pocket and go any ware with it – well if there is no signal then it’s just a lump of plastic.

Good Bit Of Kit
Reviewed by Richard. Review Posted 28/07/2007

I bought this item today and it works well. The only thing I would advise people not to do is download the drivers form the web site if you are using Windows XP. The drivers on the web site do not let you allow to scan for any channels rendering the device useless. Stick to the CD that comes with the tuner. Version 3.3B works like a dream and I reinstalled it for problem free viewing.

Amasing TV!
Reviewed by James Preston. Review Posted 31/10/2007

Among the cheapest DVB-T tuners available but don’t let that throw you, the WinTV interface (viewer) is easy to use and the picture quality is fine on a AMD 1.6Ghrz Single Core Processor.
Only thing it misses is a Remote Control but at this cost I wasn’t expecting one!
Over all 10/10!
