One word of caution: The design is made entirely of Conexant chips. Linux support is supposed to be coming… slowly. Philips SAA video decoders do the analog to digital conversion. This means that it is less then optimal to use as anything other then a dual ATSC tuner. The sample I recieved was a bare card however what is being sold by PC Alchemy is a full whitebox version with an s-video to composite adapter plus an FM antenna, driver CD, and manual leaflet. We do Thanks for reporting.

ATSC/NTSC Combo Tuner Round Up
One word of caution: Was the second ISF certified tuner on the market, and as such had excellent image quality. This means it should have good multi-path interference compensation.
A low-profile bracket is included. Comments The PVR appears to be semi-discontinued: Please support this website by adding us to your whitelist in your ad blocker.
Hauppauge HVR Hauppauge has also released a combo tuner of their own.
ATSC/NTSC Tuner Guide – Missing Remote
Easy to find in retail stores. This small single chip replaces both the Micronas audio and Philips video chips of the ngeme generation: The CX combines the hardware encoding engine of ngeje CX with the broadcast decoder and bus interface of the CX into one chip [see the PVR series in the next section for more].
This means that it is less then optimal to use as anything other then a dual ATSC tuner. S-video input is fantastic. Hauppauge has a solid design here, however it is hardly innovative, no PCI Express here, and digital TV reception was good but was beat by the M Solid chip with great image quality.
ATSC/NTSC Tuner Guide
The design is made entirely of Conexant chips. As part of the upcoming digital TV transition the final phase of consumer electronics compliance was put into effect last month: As evidenced from the analog testing the quality is very good no matter which connection you use.
A second boon for people looking for a small form factor is that the M is low-profile and includes the bracket for conversion to low-profile in the box. Surprisingly the two cards varied more then I expected: Comments Rough start with early drivers, but generally a good card.
We do plan a major overhaul of this guide. Linux support is supposed to be coming… slowly. A big thanks to our friends at for providing the review samples.
Excellent ATSC signal strength. Neither feature a dedicated composite video input, so an adapter is needed, both the retail model and “MCE” whitebox model versions include an adapter.
This is a more traditional classic PCI design. Newest drivers expose ClearQAM support.

We looked at the M in May, click here for more. Nicely, AVerMedia includes a stereo mini-jack to RCA cable for the audio line-in and an s-video to composite video adapter. Support for the M is quite good under Windows: The sample I recieved was a bare card however what is being sold by PC Alchemy is a full whitebox version with an s-video to composite adapter plus an FM antenna, driver CD, and manual leaflet.
Under Vista, only the analog inputs work. The M with low-profile bracket and line-in audio and composite video adapters.
Good reputation for signal strength and sensitivity.
