Pros plug tv cable straight into it
Cons RCA jacks aren't connected! need extra wires!!!
Summary Mine came with the computer and when I tried to hook up my DVD player to it, there was no sound. After further investigation, it was found to be missing the A/V wires inside. go here: http://www.hauppage.com/pdfs/av_cable_set_rev3.pdf
I called BestBuy who told me I was a sucker for believing the salesman who told me they were usable. so if you don't mind ordering these wires, installing them, and you have an external video card, then buy it. Otherwise, buy something else that comes with all the components needed to function correctly
