Update: the "Fiji" release of media center supports clear QAM, and it works! Yes!!
I suggest that you dont install its dirver in vista where the problem will begin unless you are looking for trouble. So the hardware is just fine and just install the driver provided by vista which seems pretty reliable so far.
UPDATE - 4 weeks later: I never received the correct software, even after 4 telephone calls. I sent the unit back for a refund. I received the credit to my card exactly 29 days later.
But the downside is that the included software from ATI does not work very well with my system, at least. It's very buggy and stalls often. I avoid using it all together. Also, I have not figured out how to get full use of the remote control to use it with MMC instead of ATI's software. Also, I had to use an amplified antenna to get a good solid signal, but I'm in a wooded area and signal will differ for each user.
Other than that, if you can find this card cheap (got mine for $40 at Best Buy!), it's well worth it. Very good hardware, questionable software.

This TV Tuner card didn't work with my Windows 7 computer. Neither of the 2 installation disks worked. Kept asking for older versions of flash player or .NET. I'm returning it.Published on October 1, 2011 by Lawrence Johnson
Easy to install. Remote works great. Windows 7 was a worry (due to it was only labeled for Vista) but the WIN 7 Media Center uses the TV signal and DVRing is a snap! Read morePublished on September 25, 2010 by C. Addis
