Which TV Tuner should I buy?
« on: May 07, 2005, 10:27:05 am »
Well, I had a WinTV-GO card and now I'm leaning more towards the ATi. There the same price, only the WinTV comes with a remote and the ATi one doesnt. The remote doesnt bother me at all though, it will only be something more for me to lose :wink:

I ended up buying the ATi since they were out of WinTV's.

Sorry to double post but: Dont buy this piece of crap ATi USB card. It is so slow and crappy. This thing is going back and I'm getting my $110 back.

The PVR350 is insane, but also a bit expensive.  The PVR250 is around that price range though.  PCI TV Tuners are for the most part, better than thier USB counterparts.

As Cmonkey said, the PVR-250 is good and PCI is better than USB.
