I had this years ago, not sure if its the exact same model as this but its a freeview / analogue one. it works very well with windows media centre, or on its own software wich isnt so good. it records while watching another channel, it has loads of connections for external devices. The only thing i found is sometimes you might get more interference with the picture than on freeview on a tv. i asked about this and i was told the pc can affect the cards when they are internal. I dont use if much any more as i recently found it to stop working very well, dont know if that the card tv signal or what. the radio worked very well and had no problems with that part of the card. If i decided to buy one now tho i would just get a usb one so i could take it placed and use in a laptop, so consider that not this now.
