  • TV/FM Tuner PCI Card

    I saw this neat TV/FM tuner PCI card at CompGeeks, and thought it might make a better FM Radio / video capture card than a USB tuner.

    The FM Antenna connection looks like a standard connector, so it should be fairly easy to find an adapter to hook it up to a car's antenna.

    Never mind the funny mascot - Computer Geeks has been excellent to me in terms of service & a good supply of various parts.

    I think for that price I would go with a Winfast TV2000XP.

    But that doesn't mean anything, I have never tried the one you posted...

      Actually, I think it IS the Winfast TV2000XP.

      Look at the picture here:

      Note the box art looks near-identical to this board - specifically the black & white tuner assembly.

        well they look a little different to me




        Plus look at the chipsets:
        Conexant Fusion 878A chipset vs. CX2388X(10 bit)

          Ive got one... Works well.. dose just what it says its going to. The only thing that dissapointed me with it was the fact that i couldn't use it through winamp. But thats just me getting my hopes way up for no reason. No worries though i threw it in the desktop at home to record Rally when im not here

            which one?

            So what is the end all best TV/FM tuner card?

            I have been looking today, and I think I might buy a Leadtek Winfast TV2000XP or an Asus TV FM, but wondering what you all think of either?

              Apparently, both boards' chipsets are made by Conexant.

              The Leadtek's version uses a newer chipset with better video capture capabilities, I think.

                Im taking this as saying the winfast is the better of the two. Is this a good card to go with? Im in the market for a good FM card (not external stuff).

                            I have a WinFast 2000XP, and a Hauppauge PVR-350.

                            The Hauppauge is much better, IMHO.

                            Neither gets very good FM reception though. The Hauppauge gets a little better reception, but I'm worried that it won't be good enough.

                              What if we use the hauppauge in combination with a good antenna. I imagine the stick care antennas are only of mid grade quality. How about if we use a high gain antenna or some pigtail action... Do you guys think that will make a difference? What is a good antenna for tv reception?
