Where is the remote ?

  • Summary: I bought this as the 'Kit' version but it is not. The 'kit' contains the MC remote and these do not. This board only version is still great though, Win7 installed it with ease and I got a remote from ebay for £4.

  • Summary: I bought this card to use with Vista Media Centre. It installed first time without any difficulty and it's performance has been superb. I agree that the picture can be a little blocky on occasion but I think that is more signal related.

  • Summary: This TV board has been designed for use with Windows Media Centre [WMC] which is a product not included with every version of windows so check that you have it on your pc. You can run it without WMC using the supplied win-tv7 program though if you need to.

  • Summary: Before I ordered this I had done my research so I knew that the 2200 'kit' included the remote and receiver for Windows Media Center. It's a pity that Dabs had not done this research too as they supply only the board.

Poor

  • Summary: Firstly the card comes with a half height bracket attached, a full height bracket as replacement and no instructions for changing them. There's a screw on the bracket connecting it to the board that is fairly easy to locate, but there's also a thumbscrew around the audio input that needs to come...

  • Summary: I've also been using this card in a mythbuntu htpc for almost a year now (my first htpc) and I am quite happy with it :) I particularly like how It can record at least 4 things at the same time... you know just in case.

  • Summary: This is a great card. I've been using it in a Gnu/Linux home theatre PC (MythTV) for months recoding a huge volume of FreeviewHD television. DVB-T support has been in Linux for a little while and experimental analogue support has just been added (I haven't tested it).
