    hi all, Just bought the card yesterday and tried it out but I am not very happy with the quality I get and the scheduler that came with it is not really functional.
    I have a pentium 4 2.6Ghz with 512DDRmemory nvidia mx400 graphics card.
    The reason I bought this card was to watch and record TV programs on my PC, see how this thing works and just have fun with it.
    However the scheduler is not really handy as the timer is only reading hours from 1-12 no indication of "am" or "pm"
    Then the quality of the image I am getting on my screen is kind of blur especially when you see subtitles etc.
    I don't know anything of these type of things and I am just trying to explore this a bit since it seems so interesting. Any help/advice/tip is welcome

    Thank you in advance

    Try Windows Xp Media Center Edition. I am currently using it with the same card and i get great image quality.

    But if you do not want to install a whole new operating system then try Beyond Tv. You can get a free test trial @ http://www.snapstream.com/
