  • Fine with Win7, Doesn't work with XP

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    Hardware seem to work well and the provided antenna receives DVB-T and FM radio in quite good quality. Build quality is pretty decent as well. Provided software is working reasonably well out of the box and relatively easy to use: TV/Radio + recording for TV/Radio + time shifting for TV + remote control + scan channels. Doesn't seem to install much bloat.

    Cons:

    - Image quality could be better (most probably a software issue and not hardware).
    - Driver didn't install on Windows XP 32 SP3 although the manual says XP is supported - complains about DirectX 9 not available although the system is fully updated to the most recent DirectX (9c) and other drivers for NVidia GTX260, windows updates, etc. So completely couldn't make it work on XP. On windows 7 Ultimate 64 everything works fine out of the box.

    OtherThoughts:

    Tried looking for drivers for Windows XP for quite a while and couldn't find any. I did download an alternative CD image for this product (China-something CVMK-K84), but the software was pretty much the same as the provided CD and the drivers there also didn't install on XP.

    Bottomline:

    Nice little product. Simple, nicely built, good antenna, useful and works well out of the box as long as you can install the driver. Worked fine on Windows 7 64, didn't work at all on XP 32.
