Further to my comments on this card. I have now been using it for quite a while and HAUPPAGE have improved the recording software immensely. It now does what it says, record two prgrams simultaneously. I would have to say that without our friends in the bittorrent community the software installation is still very hit and miss. I am now running this on W7 in preference to media center. I prefer recordings in plain old mpg rather than M$ wtv format. I would buy a freeviewHD card if they actually did one (cant say fairer than that).
real rating 7.5

Good hardware, pathetic software. Installation of hardware is easy. Installation of software is a nitemare. Even tho the software is frankly S/hite they seem to think it will be pirated, and in their efforts to stop this (or for some other reason) they make the installation of software bad. I have moved it from a win/xp computer to another win/xp and its gone from working satisfactorily to not working at all. The Drivers installs but software says there is no device? It was a nitemare getting it to work originally and there is a 2nd world of pain waiting. Avoid, unless you like solving obscure installation issues on software that regards anything beyond XpSp1 as futureland.
