    Not Windows 7 64bit compatible
    If you are using Win 7 32 bit and want a tuner that is compatible with Windows Media Center, then this is a great purchase.
    If you are using Win 7 64bit, it is not detected as a valid tuner in Media Center, and the software that is supplied is subpar. I tried using Media Portal (open source media center) but the programming guide is not as good as Windows Media Center. I tried finding plugins that would work to improve that but once I found that it worked fine on my other machine (Win 7 32bit), I quit trying.

    PROS: Works flawlessy on Windows 7 32bit, installed drivers from the CD (not available on windows update) and Windows Media Center detects it as a tuner.

    CONS: Does not work with Windows 7 64bit Windows Media Center.
    Does work with Win 7 64bit with the supplied Blaze video software, but doesnt have a programming guide as robust as WMC, and you have to manually put in the times to record for scheduling.

    It works....!!
    I loaded the drivers, rebooted the computer and ran win 7 home media center. Instant tv.

    Hook it to a better antenna for more channels.

    Great for TV on my PC A++++

    PROS: Cost, quality of picture, works on win 7 64 bit, great picture

    CONS: Remote is flimsy, but for $27, what do you want? I use a Logitech wireless keyboard $39 to control Win 7 Media Center

    Unable to search for digital channels
    Attempted to install on a Vista laptop. Able to scan for analog channels but unable to scan for digital channels. Since Canada is now digital, this item is useless to me without being able to scan and pickup digital channels.

    The printed documentation does not match the options in the provided software. I am unable to select "ATSC: Auvitek Digital Tuner".

    Very frustrating... and I have wasted an hour trying to install it.

    PROS: Nothing

    CONS: It is an ATSC tuner that does not scan or pick up digital channels... Looks like I bought an expensive paper weight.

    I do not recommend.

    PROS: Currently none

    CONS: Drivers do not work on my windows 7 machine so I have not been able to get this thing to work.

    Great Product
    I don't understand the problem that other people are having with drivers, you literally just pop in the CD that comes in the box and then click install drivers. That was done in a couple of minutes. My OS is Win 7 64bit, so there are no issues there.

    I have not tried the supplied tuner software since Windows Media Center is so great and it acts as DVR with WMC. Windows Media Center will download the correct TV Guide from online and it has a lot of options to how you want to record shows or series as they air. You also don't have to have WMC open to record shows as long as you prescheduled it, the tuner has to be plugged in and the computer has to be on, thats it. It will just record in the background with no interference.

    The supplied antenna is decent, it picked up all the major networks at my house which is in the country. My advice would be that while doing the initial search for channels hook it up to a bigger antenna and then later on plug in the small one, that way you will get more channels.

    PROS: Works great.
    Using Windows 7 64 bit with Windows Media Center as software, didn't install the software that came with the tuner.
    Within minutes I was watching great live TV using Windows Media Center on Win 7 64bit.
    Have it set up as a DVR to download shows to my computer as they air using an automated schedule in WMC.

    CONS: Blue light is a little bright.

    I haven't found a way to make the remote work, no real instructions on how to get the remote to work in the guide supplied in the box, but I also didn't install their tuning software so that may be the problem, but it would be nice to be able to use the supplied remote with WMC.

    Don't buy this. The software is crap crap crap. I can't cleanly delete anything, can install anything with it fighting with Windows 7. BIG PAIN IN THE ASS.

    PROS: Was unable to install drivers in either windows 7 or xp. Followed special instructions provided, and that did not work either. Product as this should not be difficult to install, so I would avoid it entirely.

    Don't Update
    Wish me luck getting this to work again with the original driver.

    PROS: It worked with the original mini-CD

    CONS: Downloaded a more recent version of drivers from Monoprice, now it doesn't work.

    Pretty good
    I needed a way to watch TV on my computer. No fancy PVR setup on my HTPC or anything. This fit the bill perfectly. Running smoothly on a AMD Phenom x4 with 8GB mem. I believe the specs say it can run on 1GHz processor with very little memory, but I haven't tested it. I read reviews that the software sucks, so I'm not planning to install it.

    PROS: It works! I'm watching CBS over the air using Windows Media Center on Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Just popped in the CD and installed the drivers (didn't bother with the software).

    CONS: Kinda big. Remote sensor is on the dongle (I believe). So the remote is no use to me, since it's plugged in BEHIND my computer. I don't care. If I need the remote, I'll just buy a USB extension cord from Monoprice (probably for $0.50).
