    TV Tuners/FM Tuners For MCE2005 (Need Opinions)

    The following retail TV Tuners are MCE compatible, with the appropriate drivers:
    Hauppauge WinTV PVR 250
    Hauppauge WinTV PVR 250MCE (FM capable)
    Hauppauge WinTV PVR 350
    Hauppauge WinTV PVR 150MCE
    Hauppauge WinTV PVR 500MCE (Dual Tuners)
    Hauppauge WinTV PVR USB 2.0
    ATI eHome Wonder
    ATI eHome Wonder FM
    ATI All-In-Wonder 9xxx line (Software Encoder required, probably doesn't work with Dual Tuners)
    AverMedia M150 (FM capable)
    AverMedia PVR M179 (No longer in production)
    ASUS PVR-1416(?) Forget the exact model, came with HPs, some sold via CompGeeks
    Nvidia NVTV

    Media Center Edition 2005 also supports HDTV via broadcast (OTA) and unencrypted QAM. This is accomplished via BDA (Broadcasting Driver Architecture) compatible drivers. As of this writing, the following tuner cards are confirmed compatible with MCE2k5:
    Vbox DTA 151
    DVICO Fusion-HDTV3-T
    ATI HDTV Wonder


    I'm really just looking for some USB tuner thats not all bulky or whatever......unless the card is really thin because I dont wanna fill up my XPC with cards....

    Prefibly FM and TV tuner all in one....post your opinions with the card in the subject.

    I really want the ATI eHome Wonder FM just because it has no outputs, just inputs...and its low profile and looks good..which I need it to be low profile or external for the XPC...dont want to hide all the work I Did to the XPC.

    I just tested Hauppauge USB TV on my MCE2005 and it did not detect it. The card works with Hauppauge win2000 app.

    I will now order a Hauppauge WinTV PVR 150 that are recomended by Microsoft.

    actually the AIW cards do work with multiple tuners. I set up a media center machine with an AIW9800 and an ATI hdtv wonder card and they worked fine. I returned the HDTV card cause reception at my house blew, and I didn't want to put up an antenna.
