 MTV878 TV Tuner


Anyone tried one of these?


I'm thinking of getting one of these over the I/O Magic DR-PCTV100.


The MTV878's specs spefically mentions AVI capture which is what I am interested in.


Anyone have any thoughts on this card?


TIA

Trik

I bought 2 days ago the Power Color MTV878 and I'am returning it to the store...


The tuner is a philips and is ok but lots of horizontal lines when rapide movement occurs. Running Athlon 1.33 + NForce motherboard.


The remote has essential buttons but is not programmable.

It has s-video inputs for your capture but in avi format only. You have to find a conversion tool to transfer them in mpeg.


But the annoying part is that the sound on it is terrible. It's not even mono on my sound card when hooked to it. Sibilance is heavy when word that starts with "S" sounds like "SH" very annoying also the right speakers gives sounds on 95% and the left speakers 5%...


So the drivers on the powercolor website have not been updated but suppose to be on the 11th of this month...

It is also incompatible with Dscaler... tried it :(


The MTV878FM has stereo output but I gaven't tried it...

Still looking for a tuner card with good stereo output....
