How satisfied are you with this reply? You want to get something which has an inbuilt hardware MPEG encoder. Definitely worth checking out. I have googled this but have discovered that what Microsoft says will work very often doesn’t – now there’s a shocker. Have a look at the linuxtv. I’m really impressed with this little unit as small as a lighter.

Have a look at the linuxtv. I think the only time hardware encoding will be really a requirement is with a slow PC, or if you want to play games while the device is recording a movie in the background which I wouldn’t do even if I had a hardware encoding tv tuner, as it would still need to write to harddrive and this might cause the game to stutter.

I’m using Win 7 Home 32 bit, but there are 64 bit drivers. The tuner should therefore work and as I said in my previous post I would try winows or both of Kaffeine or Me Tv. If your PC is powerful enough you can do without.

I guess as important and a decent gfx card that off-loads the CPU. I eventually downloaded the Win 7 drivers, but it did not help. Also by entering dmesg in a terminal window you should be able to see among all the messages some referring to the tuner.
