Similar NVTV cards:

EVGA NVTV Dual TV Tuner PCI Card
Point of View NVTV
Nvidia DualTV


Pros:

Hardware mpeg2 encoder
Cheap


Cons:

No remote (Bulk)
Bad software support (No classic tuner chip)
No manual
CD included without: Manual, Tuner software
not printed, not at web, only drivers
:(


Software - I've been able to use it with:

PowerCinema 4, 5
MediaPortal 0.2.3_RC1

There are more compatible software?
NVIDIA has "DualTV" models with similar chips, with "Forceware Multimedia" software, is compatible? url?
I've tested with bad results with:

BeyondTV 4.6
Dscaler 4115
K!TV 2.3.0.1
MoreTV 3.5.2
Yahoo! Go for TV 0.2.55
ExoTV 5.0.17

Is posible to use DVR software from Windows MCE at Windows XP?

I really like the mpeg2 hardware encoder (DVD ready, 720x480, 224kbps mp2), but i like have more control like capture with a loseless codec ... like lagarith, huffYUV ... or filter to have a better image ... is posible?

None of the other tuner cards at the same price range has the "mpeg2 hardware encoder", for now i don't miss too much the remote ...
Should i return the card? and change it for:

ENCORE ENLTV-FM TV Tuner with FM PCI Card
PowerColor Real Angel 330 PCI TV Tuner
TARJETA DE TVFM PCI PCTRONIX

(this are the tuners at the same shop to change)
