Easy to find in retail stores. One word of caution: Was the second ISF certified tuner on the market, and as such had excellent image quality. The sample I recieved was a bare card however what is being sold by PC Alchemy is a full whitebox version with an s-video to composite adapter plus an FM antenna, driver CD, and manual leaflet. Hauppauge has a solid design here, however it is hardly innovative, no PCI Express here, and digital TV reception was good but was beat by the M This means that it is less then optimal to use as anything other then a dual ATSC tuner. Solid chip with great image quality.

This means that it is less then optimal to use as anything other then a dual ATSC tuner. The card I reviewed is technically the OEM varient that for all intents and purposes is the ngne version of the card, I also had a retail boxed sample available but did not bother to put it in my test bench.
Newest drivers expose ClearQAM support. Support for the HVR is quite good under Windows: Hauppauge sticks with their favorite integrated circuit vendor, Conexant, for this kinux. A low-profile bracket is included.
With analog TV quality becoming less of an issue most venders have it right nowand the addition of HDTV tuning becoming the standard thanks in part to the March ngeen.
Philips SAA video decoders do the analog to digital conversion. We looked at the HVR back in May, click here for more.
ATSC/NTSC Combo Tuner Round Up
Was nbene second ISF certified tuner on the market, and as such had excellent image quality. The CX combines the hardware encoding engine of the CX with the broadcast decoder and bus interface of the CX into one chip [see the PVR series in the next section for more].
One word of caution: Linux support is a bit more bleek because of the fact that the PCI Express host interface chips are so new it takes quite a bit of time to get open source drivers developed. A bit finicky with driver installation order, and some PCI card compatibility issues.
Surprisingly the two cards varied more then I expected: Support for the M is quite good under Windows: Under Vista, only the analog inputs work.

Excellent ATSC signal strength. As part of the upcoming digital TV transition the final phase of consumer electronics compliance was put into effect last month: Hauppauge HVR Hauppauge has nngene released a combo tuner of their own.
We do Thanks for reporting. No analog image quality issues, unlike PVR family.

S-video input is fantastic. As evidenced from the analog testing the quality is very good no matter which connection you use. Neither feature a dedicated composite video input, so an adapter is needed, both the retail model and “MCE” whitebox model versions include an adapter.
