Never got it to work correctly

 

Wouldn't recommend this, even to someone familiar with installing computer hardware.

None

Poor instructions. I routinely install parts in computers, so that didn't bother me too much, until I was unable to get this to work at all. So I uninstalled all the drivers and software, went to Sabrent's website and followed their instructions for...

SABRENT TV Tuner Video Capture Card FM Radio w/ Remote SBT-TVFM PCI Interface

 

This product is not work buying. I had looked at the $xx one but decided to go for this one. Not worth buying. I can take a cheap product working with limitations but this one is just unstable and destabilizing.

None

Image freezes too often. Installed it on my XP system and CODECs got messed up to the point where I cannot watch DVDs anymore. Some ks.sys driver file is creating hell. Blue screen and all the works. I remove the card and/or uninstall the software then...

A No-Buy

 

Very few TV tuner cards seem to support 64-bit OSes in general. I can't imagine why.

Can't help you there

Never got a chance to try the actual card; WinXP 64-bit driver support is non-existent and the company has no plans for making a 64-bit driver at all. I tried sending a request for tech support to the company and haven't gotten a response (over a...

well.........

 

My main purpose of buying this item is to use it for recording TV shows on Media Center however this tuner is nowhere compatible to Media Center. It works ok with my video game console. I can understand the conversion from analog to digital is a...

Pretty good. It plays well with concole games. You just need to configure to what you like. It is cheap

You pay for what you get. The instructions is horrific. The program is poor and unstable. It does work with WinXP MCE (Media Center Edition) but not Media Center! Which is the main purpose of buying this tuner. The remote control is hard to use at times

fixed the graph cannot be previewed issue

 

I have fixed the issue that I have been experiencing while getting the graph cannot preview. It turns out that it is a TVR (software problem). It is not a driver issue at all. You just have to realize that the software is set to record in a setting...

good price, good hardware, good drivers

I can't begin to express how bad the TVR software is that comes with this thing

SABRENT TV Tuner Video Capture Card FM Radio w/ Remote SBT-TVFM PCI Interface

 

On the install cd setup screen only the middle philips drivers should be installed. If you install honestech software it will not play well with tvr and the picture will keep inverting when you start tvr. You can manually select country code in tvr...

Pretty good and cheap

Poor instructions. Poor software

Installed this in a friends computer about a year ago. He is very happy with it. He asked me to get him another for a family member.

Easy install. Had no problems with drivers or interface

Remote buttons did not operate the correct function
