  • NEW FM RADIO SOLUTION..no D-Link crappy reception!!!!

    I just bought and installed this:

    http://registration.hauppauge.com/we...9&VisID=324289

    a bit on the pricey side $99, but it has tv tuner capabilities as well....it's gonna cost you a pretty penny to get one of those powered tv antennas, cuz you won't get crap with a regular one. But the fm radio reception is awsome and the sound quality is like a regular radio.....

    I got it running with XP, but having some issues with the usb hub, but that is most likely my computer set up.....

    Let me know what you guys think...

    I have both this and the d-link.... the d-link is the biggest piece of crap i've ever seen. If you wanna buy mine, let me know :-)

    I bought the pci version since i am not using a sff mobo. The FM reception is suprisingly well. I do get some TV channels with just a small antenna i had laying around but it is not the best. I bought it because of the FM and i needed a basic capture card otherwise I would have just found a cheap fm only card.

      Hate to break it to you, but this can be had a bit cheaper.

      Hauppauge WinTV USB from Netlux Solutions

      And PriceWatch claims that it can be had for $58 (+ 4.95 shipping) if you mention PriceWatch.

        great.

        Great, even cheaper! Now we can get everyone to sell their crappy d -link and buy this. Trust me guys, i have both and the d link is garbage compared to this. Even the software that comes with it is decent for car use. Simple buttons that can kinda be used at 800 x 600 touch resolution.

        ANyone wanna buy my d - link????

              Does the WinTV-USB have a connector for an external FM antenna? I want to hook this up to my car's antenna.

                      But can you interface it VIA your own software like you can the DLINK? That is what is the most important to me.

                        The wintv fm software is a hundred million times better than the d -link crapola in my opinion. Simple and to the point. You might have to search further to see if you can use it with other software, but i don't see why not. If the crap d-link can do it, why not this??

                          I am wondering basically the same thing... My experience with hauppauge has been good in my home PC...

                          Why is everyone using the d-link?

                            because mediacar supports only D-link at the moment. Also the d-link onlyu cost £8 roughly $20

                              I think that it's only mono, not stereo.
