So lets take a look at what we have here...
An MPEG Decoder card that also allows the use of nearly any conceivable video appliance, has a built-in TV tuner, recording capabilities in variable bit rates, and also an included video editing program. Is there anything else that we need? Not that I can think of off-hand.
While the TV picture quality isn't perfect (due to a digitalized MPEG stream and the lack of using the system video card), it is still very clear and lacks the distortion and jerkiness of some tuners that I have seen in the past. It has a remote control for all the Couch Potatoes out there, and everything is designed for ease of use.
Recording quality is also very good. You can adjust the levels of recording quality to fit your own personal needs, and balance them for a good combination of file size and clarity. At the higher levels, you will get a playback quality that rivals the original feed. It's hard to find fault with a setup like that.
Bottom line... If you've been looking for a TV card, then that alone would be reason to look at this product. Adding to that the ability to accept signals from various video devices and the recording capabilities makes this an excellent choice for your multimedia needs.
