This card is fine for watching TV, but don't expect to use it for much more than that.

Put simply, it's a little box that lets you watch the TV on your PC, either full screen or in a window as you are doing something else. At the moment, I'm watching the Test Match as I write this. It can also be used to upload video from your camcorder. It is capable of storing 125 channels, including cable TV. Being a USB device, connectivity couldn't be easier and the unit copes happily having it's ... Read the complete review
