I have this and it does a decent job if you've got a high horsepower machine as there is no hardware encoder. It only handles over the air digital. It has both and analog and a digital tuner and is much better than the board based KWorld products. The antenna it comes with works pretty well for me if I place it near a window facing the direction of the source signal but you'd probably want to invest in a better antenna. It does it's job pretty well, but I'd suggest looking elsewhere if you are looking for a tuner for a good HTPC setup though.
Works well with my laptop (Hp-Compaq nc8230 1.86ghz centrino 1.5gigs of ram)
i live in the atlanta area and i pull in 19 stations (some are duplicates) very well.
works great with beyondtv and the arcsoft software it comes with. i seemed to have a problem with sage and gb-pvr it seems these programs might need a little more horsepower. i highly recommend beyondtv.
currently $40 rebate
