I decided to give this card a try even after reading all the bad reviews about it not working with W7. I plugged in the card and it said windows did not have drivers for it. When it prompted to look online or let me browse for drivers I pointed it to the CD(that came with it) to the windows vista drivers for both audio and video. Had it working in 10 minutes with Windows Media Center picking up 20 stations with 100% signal strength. This card is working great for me. You just have to be smarter then the computer and the card to get it working.

I bought this for my laptop because the sales rep. assured me it will work with window 7. when i recived the product i read the whole manuel and did as it said. very dissapointed that it did not work at all and also contacted the manufactor, they told me it does not work with windows 7. i would have never bought it if the agent said it would work fine and even advertise that it is windows 7 ready.. NOT true. on top of all this i had a very hard time returning it and getting my money back.

I followed the manual and got it to install with little issue, but kept getting hangups during channel scan. The manual mentioned that the tuner draws quite a bit of power, so I unplugged it from one of my front USB ports to one of the powered ports on the rear of my computer that works to charge USB devices. Changing the port did the trick and I was able to get everything up and running with the included software. The main problem I've had is that my computer is pretty ancient (AthlonXP 2800 cpu) and the lack of an on-board MPEG encoder makes my cpu have to do a lot of work to watch analog cable stations (50-75 percent cpu on average). Recording with BlazeVideo does not work well in analog due to my cpu already being stressed out, but works great on digital channels where the signal is already in MPEG format. I had no luck getting this to work in Media Center in Windows 7 RC1, the tuner wasn't detected.

Excellent value, nicely build physically. But it does not work with Windows 7, and it works with flaws with Windows VISTA. Also, it is not a ''world analgog TV'' device -it only works with NTSC signals, not with PAL signals.

I just got this usb tv tuner, and honestly to tell you the truth instead of installing and downloading all the drivers, if you have windows vista just use windows media center. Windows media center does all the same feature's and better it automatically configures device and searches for the channels for you. I got 74 because (i subscribe to cable)instead of using attenna, very good souud and video quality. Can record pause as well. Media center is better than the blaze program they give you. Plus i have on screen guide of what tv shows are on. This honestly isn't a bad little tuner for the price, just do what i did and within five minutes you will be watching tv. Not bad for $39 dollars is a good investment

I am running Win 7. When I got the TV Tuner I tried to connect it. Even with tech help to get a correct driver it did not work. I also have a computer running XP. It worked fine connected to it. I bought it to use during power outages in storms, so it works fine for me. Maybe I'm just to quick to expect Win 7 adaptation.

JUNK. I bought and installed this device and despite working in the IT field for 15 years had significant problems getting this to work in Vista. It did work for a few days, then in the midst of Vista upgrades (thanks Microsoft) it stopped working and I keep getting error messages. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, tried to contact Sabrent, Conextant, Auvitek, and BlazeVideo for assistance but no one will claim ownership and no one will help. BIG WASTE OF MONEY when no one is willing to support these things.

It was a little difficult getting started (getting the program loaded), but once it did - it worked. The drawback was that you have to be outside of the house in order to pick up more then two stations. But, once it did - it picked up at least 25 stations!

I was kind of hesitant to buy the Sabrent TV-USBHD Digital and Analog USB Tuner but gave it a go. I read the instructions very carefully and slowly twice did exactly what they said to do. Picked up 22 digital channels in a large urban city. Digital picture is very sharp and clear on my Windows XP.

I bought this product and out of the box it felt flimsy. Once installed, it continuously flickered which became very annoying, quickly. I would definitely not recommend the product even though it is a money saver. Go with the Hauppage one instead!

The antenna stinks, I used a real one & got my signals just fine. Who needs Media Center?

It does its job in the basic sense, but definetly not a top of the line type. used it on XP pc, did catch few channels on the antenna. Worked pretty good with a cable box also, however just remember with cable box you loose the ability to record shows on a schedule. One of the main disappointments was the quality of the recordings, it was like watching a very low bandwidth youtube video.

I was able to receive NTSC from my cable box without any problem. Off the air was a little more difficult. It took an outside antenna and quite a while to get it to work, but finally it did receive some of the channels. My converter box receives all of the local channels where as the USB HDTV device does not.

I cannot say if this product works correctly or not as no channels of any type were found. So either there are no available signals (possible) or the product doesn't work properly (possible). I cannot be sure.
