Windows 7: TV tuner compatibility

20 Jul 2009   #11

Windows Vista, Server 2008, Leopard, Suse

Alternatively you could run XP or vista X86 in a virtual machine, since your tv tuner is USB, this might work, of course you will need host software that has full USB support (such as vmware workstation). Quite frankly, time for a new tuner :)
