    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.
