Pretty cool, if you have lots of free time for troubleshooting

What I expected was this cool full featured tuner that interfaced with my other services, etc!
Well, Nope, that's not this and a huge pain to install under XXP, never worked properly under that OS.
It is essentially a full featured TV tuner. If you buy it I suggest:
1. Get a good antenna and set it on the first floor
2. Attach this baby to the router if you have a home network. I was hooking it to the TV and to the router and that worked, but poorly.
3. Buy the older model used and save money and don't believe it will work under XP. It didn't for me.
If you want a Windows Media Player tv tuner and controller and the ability to broadcast that to your phone and tablet, this is the right one. If you want more features buy the more expensive models and prepare for sticker shock or skip it. Impossible to get solid under XP, upgraded to Windows 7 to make it work. Never tried a Mac OSX machine, but after hours trying to make it work and being pretty tech I was scared of starting over on a Mac.
