Asus My Cinema-PHC3-100/NAQ/FM/AV/RC TV Tuner Review

» Discuss this article (2)


The ASUS My Cinema TV Tuner card has proved to be part awesome and part let-down. The software included with the card was the main disappointment and cast a shadow on a card that otherwise shined. With the ability to pull down clear signals on analog cable and FM radio, the thing that really matters, the hardware itself, really stood out. There are plenty of inputs, and the ability to receive both digital and analog TV signals which will be very important once the FCC mandated switch occurs. The addition of a sidebar gadget allows shows to be watched easily while performing other tasks on your computer and can be a great benefit to those who work from home or play a lot of video games. All-in-all, I love this tuner and the quality it shows, but the lack of really refined software has been a little disappointing.
