It even works, sometimes! by RobAnt
If you want to use this with Windows Media Centre, be aware that you need the Windows 7 version, as found in Windows 7 Home Premium.
The antenna connection (a standard female RF to male MCX plug) is fragile, and they're not easy to source in the UK. You can wait weeks for a suitable replacement to come from the US.
As PCTV are now allied with Hauppauge, it would be a good idea if Hauppauge included the driver in their WinTV software which would be cool for those of us with other Hauppauge receivers. I, for instance, have access to both Freeview and Free to Air Satellite, and this product would actually increase the number of HD channels available, duplicating 3 of them for true multi-tuner (watch one channel, while recording something else) use.
Easy Freeview HD with W7 Media Center by Media Man
An excellent (if a little expensive - especially if you need two!) USB tuner. Sensitivity is as good as any digital USB tuner stick that I've had experience of in the past. Two work extremely well within W7 Media Center. The lowest spec machine that I've used them with is an Intel Atom 1.6Ghz, 2MB Asrock HT300 and, apart from interface speed, performance is as good as an i3 4MB Asrock Vision. They perform equally well on 32 or 64 bit systems.231 of 415 people rated this review as helpful
