Flaked out after a few months

Pros: None.

Cons: Failed quickly.
Bundled with horrible software.

When I first bought this USB TV Tuner (Monoprice P/N: 6151), I had high expectations. Though it's not compatible with Windows Media Center or any major PVR software, it comes bundled with its own software package ("BlazeDTV") that is able to interpret the ATSC output correctly. This software doesn't have a functional scheduling system, and the controls are impossible to read at a distance (so much for having a 10 Foot UI), but I thought all of this could be overlooked given the price point.

Unfortunately, I wasn't so much buying a TV tuner as renting one. A few months after installing this, the TV channels each lost reception, one-by-one. Now I have no reception whatsoever. At first I thought it was my antenna or computer... maybe even a tree coming into bloom in my yard. But I measured the strength of the signal coming in at each frequency, and none has changed significantly. I hooked up a separate TV to the antenna and see no issues. I reinstalled all the software and drivers. Nothing worked. The TV tuner just stopped working.

A quick word about the software that came bundled with it. It's got the old-school shareware business model, letting you watch TV only so many times before it starts bombarding you with advertising and demanding payment. You have to start hitting cancel any time you want to get back to watching TV. None of this would matter if this device cooperated with alternative software packages, which, of course, it doesn't.

In all, I'd strongly recommend you not buy this product. I wish I had a better alternative to suggest, and maybe I'll find one. In the meantime, keep shopping.

Works Great On Win 7 x64

Pros: Works as advertised
Great price
Quick shipping
Works perfect with Windows Media Center

Cons: Windows 7 x64 drivers are a bit of a hassle to install - Read instructions carefully!
Remote did not work (probably user error)

After reading the reviews I must admit I was a bit apprehensive about buying this tuner, but almost all the other USB tuners I looked at had mixed reviews as well. Difference was, this one was half the price of the others. I was watching and recording live TV in less than 30 minutes. Very happy with my purchase. Thanks!

On my Second One

Pros: I haven't found one yet

Cons: I am on my second tuner the first died it two days. The second one for some reason will not let me record TV at all. Just go to the store and buy a PCI tuner or software from there, it will end up being simpler.

Worst piece of junk that I have bought on this site. Normally everything 100% but this item and having two bad ones in a row make it the item a no buy, stay away, junk, time waster. Plain and simple.

First it worked, now it doesn't

Pros: Easy set-up if you use Windows media center

Cons: Windows Media Center is not included in most Win 8 installations, and you need a $99 upgrade to get it - what a rip-off.

Installed earlier this month, it initially worked well. Installed the drivers on a Win 7 64 bit computer, hooked it up to a great antenna from Costco, I could never get it to work with the software included, but it was working well in Windows Media Center. It was plugged into a powered USB 2 hub at the time. It always ran hot so I wondered about it's longevity, well it gave up a few days ago.
I checked the antenna on the TV, still working fine, I tried plugging into an open USB port on the PC, and the LED at least lit up, but it does not see any channels. I uninstalled and reinstalled the driver, no luck. It also appears that the cheap little antenna and packaging materials have vanished so I guess RMA is not going to happen. Bummer.
