My current lounge room machine is an amd x4 2.6ghz 2gb ram on an asus m3n-vm-hdmi motherboard, i am running a compro videomate e700 dual digital tuner, and a Compro dvbt-100 inside giving me 3 tuners in one media centre setup - this setup wasn't possible on vista - any version.

Wow, and I can't even get 1 stupid tuner to work most of the time.

I have a Compro E800F that works fine with Windows 7, auto detected by W7 no Compro drivers used, I alsop have TinyTwin usb that works using the supplied drivers on cd.
I havn't tried the Compro software because it's crap, won't even work in Vista properly, works in Media Center ok but even changing channels using Compro can lock it up.
I can record on all 3 tuners at the same time without any problems using Media Center.

I'm going to have to second this one. I swear by my 2250 and hasn't let me down, yet. Neither XP nor Vista played well with the HD stations, but Win7 had no trouble whatsoever. I don't recommend their viewing software though; stick to Media Center.

I think the one thing we all can agree on is most cards are pretty good just depends if you want 1 or 2 tuners : or analogue and digital and maybe fm.... The main thing seems to be that if you've got one just use media center to watch them cause the bundled stuff is mostly rubbish.
if you just want it to record and not watch -then i'd suggest google searching for tvscheduler pro (formerly DVB-Websheduler pro) it uses a java base and less than 3% of cpu resources on a p4 single core 2.4 - when recording. unlimited tuners. and many options for getting the epg info.

Well, the Nova-TD 500 has 2 digtal (DVB) tuners, now, I can't see myself living without 2 tuners, it's definitly a must have. Watching TV while record TV or recording 2 TV channels.

The Hauppauge HVR 2250 allows you to record or watch two programmes simultaneously in the one card.

For Cable/QAM for just geneal DVB though then the TD-500 would do and would allow each tuner to have it's own aerial.

Since one HD started in april i often need to have 3 tuners running at once my wife won't watch the sport and sometimes it's on 3 stations at once!!

PS. I also got a compro u100 usb tuner to work with the others giving 4 tuners at once and exhausting WMC7's available tuner positions.
