I'm building a stand alone multimedia PC, and I have an HVR2200 on backorder from ascent for $145. I just read some posts stating that the HVR2200 doesn't work with analog TV in mediaportal. Can anyone confirm this? If so perhaps I am ordering the wrong card, and I should get a different card. Analog TV is not absolutely important and compatibility and stability is probabiy the most important issue.
The gear I already have
Christchurch Roof Top UHF Aerial with perfect reception
AMD X2 4200+ CPU
Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H 780G Motherboard (Onboard h264 decoding)
WD 750GB HDD
Adata 2gb ddr2-800
Enermax 535W speed control PSU
Samsung 46" Full 1080P LCD TV via HDMI
+Samsung 5.1 Stereo via redemption in the post
Silverstone remote control
Will run windows vista + mediaportal
So my question is, am I choosing the best tv card for the job? I guess the disadvantage of getting a PCI-E TV turner is that it wont allow me to do crossfire with another video card and the onboard card.
Would i be better of with the Nova T 500? The 2200 is on backorder till the 16th so it's not too late to cancel my order and choose something different
