"worse than an all-in-wonder"2.0 starson by sfash05
Pros: Hardware encoder
Cons: off color, choppy video, confusing and buggy software
Summary: I originally had an ATI all-in-wonder 7500, but the tv is a little messed up so I decided to get a new, stand alone card with hardware encoder. I narrowed my choices down to the Hauppauge PVR-150 and the ATI TV-Wonder Elite based on reviews. I bought the Hauppauge instead because it was cheaper. Disapointed.
Not only does the card not live up to all the hype and reviews, the video quality doesn't even measure up to my all-in-wonder tuner. The color is a bit off, the video is choppy at times (possibly my graphics card or cpu?), and the software was horrible. It was very counter intuitive and it doesn't correctly respond to my multimedia keyboard either (logitech mx duo). I am disapointed, will return the card and upgrade to the ATI TV-wonder-elite to see if any better.
