  • Excerpt: <installation> I 1st installed this on a Vista machine with an Asus K8V SE motherboard The card was seemingly installed OK but after scan I could not receive any freeview channels, only analogue so I rang the help desk because the analogue system has no future.
  • Pros: Inexpensive and useful
  • Cons: Does not install on all motherboards tried

Good Picture Quality, but software is a let down.

  • Excerpt: If you are like me and want to watch TV whilst doing stuff on your PC, this is the card for you. It takes up one PCI slot (do check if you have a spare slot as new motherboards don't include many spares one) The (Freeview) picture quality is "SUPERB" on this card and you will not regret.
  • Pros: Digital Picture quality if tops !
  • Cons: WinTV sucks, Channels numberrs not ordered up, EPG sucks, No Teletext

Probably one of the Cheapest and Best TV PCI Card

  • Excerpt: WHY BUY A TV AND A FREEVIEW BOX WHEN YOU CAN USE YOUR PC I didn't have a tv in my room since there wasn't any room for even a small one. I thought how would I be able to view TV in my room.
  • Pros: Watch Analgue and Digital Freeview TV on your PC, Record TV
  • Cons: Need to OPEN PC to slot in PCI card, Need a free PCI Slot

Good spec, crap software

  • Excerpt: Review written in 2007 - using software version 3.3c The specification of Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1100 is impressive. But does it live up to its claims? The card has both an analogue and digital tuner (Freeview). The spec says you can record programmes and also has a FM Radio (not DAB radio).

Bonne carte TV, logiciels nuls

  • Summary: Voilà une carte TV qu'il ne faut absoluement pas acheter, enfin, ne surtout pas ce servir des logiciels fournit par Hauppauge! qui sont vraiment obsolètes. Je parle en connaissance de cause, j'ai monté ma carte TV très facilement, la seule difficulté, c'est de trouver le bon port (PCI).
  • Pros: Double tuner, facile d'installation
  • Cons: logiciels fournit avec la carte TV
