Do you have one?

Here are the unspupported devices

Here are the supported devices
http://snapstream.helpserve.com/inde...articleid=1126

Just like the KB article says if a capture card is isn't on either list it may still work.

If you have the card download the trial and give it a shot. If you don't have the card and you want to use BTV I'd pick from the supported list just to be on the safe side.

Cool Re: Easy TV MPEG PCI TV Tuner (Philips SAA7130 Chipset)

No, I don't have it yet. That's just the cheapest I can get.

Anyways, how does this work? You put the card in, Install the drivers, then install Beyond TV?

Do I still need the drivers of the tuner card? or Beyond TV has its own drivers for the device?

Yes you will need to have the card fully installed for BTV to utilize it and then install BTV.
So how cheap is that card?

Re: Easy TV MPEG PCI TV Tuner (Philips SAA7130 Chipset)

Wel just be careful you don't get what you pay for (is it a hardware encoding card?). I know it's approaching 2x the cost but the Hauppauge 150 is on the supported list. Snapstream sells it for $64 http://store.snapstream.com/pvr150mce.html I'm sure you could probably hunt and find it cheaper.

Good luck

There is a $49.95 hauppauge card from pcalchemy.com. Looks like a bargain to me.

IF and I stress IF it's an PVR-150 that ain't bad - seems a bit cheap to me.

The other card you asked about, I had thought about getting and no-one here had a clue.

It really depends if you "need" a hardware decoding/encoding card (ala the PVR's) or not.

The software encoding cards which WILL DO MPEG-2 as well as Divx and AVI are cheap. I've got one sitting here for with FM for 20 bucks, as opposed to the PVR-250 I bought for a C note - but I digress.
