I hope this is in the right section, if not mods please move it.
I'm currently looking to invest in an HD tuner for my computer. I use Vista Media Center and so far the only HD tuner card that I see that has QAM (Unencrypted HD) that will function with Vista's media center is the HDHomeRun (Newegg.com - SiliconDust HD Homerun Dual Network HDTV ATSC/QAM Tuner IPC-HDHOMERUN Ethernet Interface - Retail
) Currently I use Cox Cable and they do have QAM channels.
Does anyone on this board have any experience with this card or QAM/HD Tuners in general so I know a little bit about what to expect? Will the HD signal be widescreen in media center when I maximize it or will it be widescreen with the black at the top and bottom and cropped. For that last question experience with OTA HDTV tuners will suffice.
Any advice or sharing of experiences is also appreciated!
