Are there any USB TV tuners for Windows 7 that people would recomend ??

I have an ASRock ION and there's nowhere to put an internal tuner card.

My old FREECOM dual-tuner is found in Windows7/WMC, but it took 12 hours to scan for channels and then when it had finished it couldn't display the A/V

TIA.

I have a Dvico Fusion DVB-T PCI card and downloaded the latest version of their software (v. 3.80), purportedly catering for 64-bit OSs.

There is no way I can get this card and software to work under Win7 RTM - without installing drivers it crashes Media Centre; when I install the Dvico software it refuses to install the required driver, and a yellow ! mark appears for Multimedia controller under Device Manager. Trying to install a driver via Device Manager fails to find any, either on the web or on the computer...

Any help gratefully acknowledged.

Cheers,

NB: a $A49 Leadtek 'cheapie' works beautifully with WMC under Win7 RTM on another machine

I think I already posted in here, but my WinTV-HVR-1800 Product description works OOB without any third party drivers or the need to install their proprietary WinTV application. There is a new product, the 1850, which replaces the RCA jacks with an onboard IR receiver, so you don't need a beanbag - but I have a desktop so beanbag is good for me.....

Just a few days ago I did a clean install of the RTM 64 version and although Win7 recognised the card (ie. seemingly no driver issues) it would not find any TV stations in MCE. I then installed the version 3.8 software from DViCO as you mentioned and not only does their software work but MCE does as well. I know this doesnt help you much but it does prove that it works with Win7 64 RTM and Fusion HDTV 3.8. Clean install...

Thanks Dig,

this gives me some hope...

Perhaps it has to do with the fact that I have the card in a dual-boot PC? It works just fine undr XP SP3 but not under Win7 RTM (installed on a separate drive). Maybe the installer somehow 'sees' the Fusion software installed on the other drive and won't install another?

Will keep trying...
