Windows 7: List of tested TV Tuner Cards

Thanks Orpheous for keeping this thread up to date. I would like to add that here in Canada, some features of my Tuner were disabled (clearQAM) while installing the Tuner in WMC. This is no fault of Windows, as I could spoof my location to a US zip and receive full features of the card (this is not a realistic option as every channel was named incorrectly in the guide, it was simply an experiment).

In fact, I don't receive any more channels with my HTPC TV Tuner card than I did using my TV as a tuner. Major advantage is being able to use the guide, and the record functionality.

Just thought I'd pass this along.

Thanks for the QAM info JulesAndAl, I'm unfamiliar with clearQAM myself, as far as I know it's not available here in Australia. I'll be sure to look into it during my next days off, and hopefully add some more info to this thread.

Thanks again! I'd rep you for the post, but I have to "spread some around first"

I just turned my computer into a media pc with Windows 7 (x64) Ultimate. I am using an ATI Tv WOnder HD 650 Dual Tuner card and a Pinnacle PCTV Remote Kit. Both are working great. Just plugged them in and installed the drivers.

The remote says it is for Vista but it works fine in 7 as well.

Got the tuner on woot for $25 with shipping and the remote on tiger.com for $35 with shipping.

I finally got around to buying a Family Upgrade Pack, and installed the x64 version on my HTPC, which consists of:
Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R motherboard
Sapphire Nvidia 8600GT 512Mb
2 X 2 Gb of Kingston DDR2 1066
DigitalNow DNTV Live! Dual Hybrid S2 PCI-E (DVB-T tuner)

The tuner card uses a Phillips chip, and the installed Windows 7 drivers originally caused a BSOD when scanning for channels in Media Center. The latest drivers from the DigitalNow site fixed the problem, and it's now running without issues (thankfully!).

WinTV Nova-T pci

I have Hauppuage wintv Nova-t pci card which has worked exceptionally well with every operating system I have had installed for over 4 years including Win 7 (64bit). I upgraded my system to an Intel i5 750 processor and Asus P7P55D motherboard and it now will not work. Have had numerous conversations with Hauppuage who claim it is fully compatible but even they are at a loss to find reason. Media Centre says no tuner present yet system says there is, all drivers and software are installed and correct. Worked fine with Win 7 right up to upgrade. Still have Vista 32 on separate hard drive and will not work with this either so it must be related to motherboard /processor, any ideas?

It would be great if we could have the following information:
Manufacturer - Model - 32bit or 64bit OS - A &/or D (Analog &/or Digital)- Connection type (USB/PCI-E/PCI)
also, if the card works on W7 with third party software, please include the program name and version if possible.
