Subject: Re: [mythtv-users] TV tuner card recommendations?
I am a pretty new MythTV user, and need some recommendations for a good
TV tuner card.
I started out with a very cheap card from Kworld, that I can make work
in Myth (with a lot of hoop jumping), but the quality sucks. So I am
considering getting a Haupaugge PVR-150, since I have heard it is a
pretty good card and has great compatibility and is reasonably priced.
Here are my questions:
1) Is this a good card to start with? Does anyone have any positive (or
negative) comments about this card that I should keep in mind before my
2) If I do buy the PVR-150, should I get the OEM version (no remote),
the "standard" version, or the MCE version?
3) Are there any other specific models (by Haupaugge or any other brand)
that you would recommend?
**I do realize that this is a single tuner card, but I am willing to go
with that to start out with. If I REALLY REALLY get into the MythTV, I
figured I could add a second card later; or even upgrade to a dual tuner
Thanks in advance for the help,

I am getting ready to purchase a tuner card to start with also. I have
been considering a Kworld card, what model were you using? I am
interested in OTA ATSC and possibly some OTA Analog.
Recommendations on OTA ATSC cards welcomed.
