Hmm... Well, Personally I think their app is "pretty not bad" , except 
that the only channel that I care to record has reception problems using 
their software.  :-/

Oh well....

While we're trashing hardware companies' windows software, let me 
mention the fact that I cant get ANYTHING out of the windows software 
for AVerTVHD A180...

Cannot scan ANY channels, nothing at all... No proof the card works at 
all.  I bet it probably works fine under Windows MCE, but I dont have a 
copy.

Until Kirk posted the nxt200x driver, I thought I had a dud card.  Now I 
made it work in linux, so I'm happy.....

Over my vacation from work, I'm going to build a monster video server 
with at least 5 dvb/v4l boards in it...........

Of course, who needs that if I only record 1 channel? (besides a mad 
scientist)

Cheers,
Mike
