I wasn't expecting much from a PCMCIA tuner for a few reasons, but I was quite surprised at just how well TV viewing, basic recording, and time shifting functioned. Although the system did limit what the card was capable of, the AVerTV Cardbus showed that it can definitely be recommended for anyone looking to add a TV tuner to their notebook computer. - The Review

nice review, this is my first time hearing about avermedia... pretty cool looking stuff.
I am really impressed with how well the PCMCIA card did. I can't imagine many people using those though, seems like USB would be the more obvious choice... Anyway, if I had a laptop I would have it hooked up to a SlingBox anyway, forget a tuner card
I am currently using a hauppauge wintv-pvr 350 which is awesome...

Too bad that avermedia doesn't provide reasonable support for their products. I have the ezmaker USB pro and it works great under XP, but I'm moving on with a new PC and it comes with vista.
The avermedia products do not have vista ability and their support department says that the hardware doesn't allow them to make it work under vista. They want to sell you new products. Any Product is only good if it works with your tools. Unfortunately, this is typical of the support for consumer/computer products. here today and literally gone tomorrow.
based on the date of your thread, this product is really not that old and aver didn't even carry it for vista...what's that 2 years after intro.
