Watch High-definition Digital TV on Your Computer With dual format TV tuners, the WinTV-HVR-1600 lets you watch ATSC digital TV as well as QAM digital TV and analog cable TV.

I did not bother with WinTV; Windows Media Center works very well for me, and is fully compatible with this tuner. At first I was using it to tune analog cable, and it worked fine for that purpose. I was satisfied that the picture was as good as analog could be, but of course I was pining for HD. Our local cable provider charged far too much money to provide access to local channels in HD, which is all I really wanted, so I installed an outdoor antenna for over-the-air reception. Even an indoor antenna worked reasonably well, but with some dropouts. With the outdoor antenna, I get solid HD reception along with the extra sub-channels found on some broadcasters (especially PBS). The cost of the antenna and installation was about the same as 8 months of digital cable, so it's paid for. Because there are two TV inputs (one for analog, one for HD) you might be tempted to use a passive splitter to use the same signal for both, and perhaps for other devices. I recommend that you avoid/minimize splitting because it greatly reduces the signal, or get an active splitter, one that requires electricity to power amplifiers that prevent loss from splitting. I have since upgraded to Windows 7 64-bit, and this card works perfectly with that Windows Media Center on that system. I have never tried using digital cable with this card, but I understand that it is supported in Windows 7, but not Windows Vista, at least not the original release. I got this card maybe 18-24 months ago and it continues to work flawlessly.
  • 4. I gave "Features" only four stars because I wish there was an FM tuner on this card, like there are on some others.
