I need one for watching analog cable TV and using my XBOX 360 in my dorm, cause I really don’t want to buy another television, or have room here for my 32’ at home.
My specs are:
AMD Athlon XP X2 3800+
2GB Dual Channel RAM
Acer 17’ LCD monitor
Usually there is delay in TV tuners. I tried mine with a ps2 once and it didn’t go so well. Its the same with TV outs. So I suggest that you read the relevant specs carefully before getting one.
What would those relevant specs be?
The response of course. Your xbox games wont be much fun if your inputs respond half a second later on the screen. For starters, stay of the swann company stuff…I have one of them and it sucks. Most manufacturers wont include details like response in their catalog. So you will need to note the brand/model and search around to see anyone had luck with playing video games on it.
I’m thinking of buying this one. Any qualms?
My main concern right now is getting a TV tuner that will work well with my 360.
Pros: This card works great. I use this Tuner Card as a capture and play device for my Nintendo Wii, and for that it works amazingly. Using DScaler, (Which is fully compatable with this card) it is super easy to capture screenshots and videos. The image quality is far superior over the K-World card I had before. Seems to work just fine with Windows Vista Ultimate. Packaging and installation were very simple.
Cons: The software it comes with is really bad. I highly recommend DScaler for capturing and viewing needs. Remote didn't seem to work, but that is no big deal for me.
Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a capture card or tuner card that will work with DScaler and Windows Vista, this is the one. Good cheap price, and it really does deliver. By the way, the chipset on the card is SAA7131E; I had to search around a bit on the web to find that. Props to Newegg as always for fast shipping and amazing customer support.
The guy is saying it works well with wii.
