I attempted to install this TV tuner on two different PCs. One was new, the other had just had an OS reset so no other apps were installed. The first was with windows 8/64. The second was windows 7/64. Nothing exotic on either. In the both cases the tuner worked for a brief while (less than an hour) and then the system reported that no drivers where found. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling both drivers and apps. Still could not make it function. Windows would not recognize the drivers on the OEm disk. An email to the manufacturer went unanswered. Reviewing various user community sites reviewed a number of people had similar driver problems. Admittedly some got it to work. In spite of my age I am computer literate and at one time was a certified A+ PC tech. My summary is that this is a twitchy device that is very sensitive to whatever is on your pc and is not reliable.
The item worked intermittently. Video was good when it worked. Remote also worked at times.
Returned after 9 days.
I've always liked the "wonder" series of TV tuners, but the computer (Dell 660s) I bought this one for didn't recognize it. It's probably more a problem with the Dell, but after talking to Dell's tech support and researching some more, I'm probably going to try one of the Hauppauge ones.
the item cxame with no key for installation of the software
