Very capable device

If you stick with Media Center and off-the-air for ATSC HD, it works as designed and meets my requirements.
Pros:Easy setup, smooth integration into Media Center (except for QAM), effortless recording of analog cable and off the air ATSC HD signals, including surround sound.
Cons:Two problems. First, it is incompatible with sleep mode. If enabled, returning from sleep makes the card appear as if it had been removed from the system. The documentation does not say this - I had reseated the card and rebooted many times trying to keep it working until I found a reference on the Hauppage website. Disabling sleep fixes the problem (but of course then you are not "green"). Second - The WinTV application (necessary to use the QAM signal) is very buggy and locks up constantly. I am only able to use it at all by running as administrator (not mentioned in the docs or website) - it feels as if the Vista compatiblity is shaky. The FM Radio application must also be run as Administrator or it will lockup.
