Is the XFX NVTV dual tuner any good (1 Viewer)



Win XP Pro

Hi, my first time in here. Anyway:

I've tried a compro videomate and a hauppauge pvr 500 briefly (seemed to work well but I don't watch much TV so dont think I can justify the expense).

I was thinking that I may buy an ATI Theatre 550 based card since they're about half the prive of the pvr 500 but I've found a XFX NVTV dual tuner board pretty cheap online (thought it could come in handy on the rare occasion I may want to record two shows) but can't seem to find any reviews.

Has anyone tried the XFX NVTV dual tuner? It seems to be really cheap for a dual tuner board with hardware encoding so is the card anygood? Would you still recomend the theatre 550?

Any input would be appreciated.

    Well the ATI Theatre 550 is currently not supported but the NVTV dual tuner is.

    Note: The NVTV cards software encode the audio where aas the Hauppauge PVR's do this in hardware. But the NVTV's are reported to work very well.
