TBS PCI-E DVB-S2 Quad Tuner TV Card
Received this card promptly from BizTek World with Amazon's super saver delivery. The card is solid looking and fitted my HTPC case without problem. I didn't need to use the board's additional power connector since my setup does not require DISEC dish positioning. Windows driver installation was simple and worked perfectly with both the drivers on the included disc and the updated drivers from the manufacturers website. Cannot comment on the included remote as I use a generic media centre IR remote instead.Using Media Portal (with 4TheRecord as the tuner manager) tuning was painless enough and I was soon able to watch live TV. The picture quality is great and the sensitivity of the tuners seems good too - glitch free viewing. The speed at which you can change channels, whilst not instant, is perfectly acceptable for me - in-line with what I have read about most of the other DVB-S2 cards.Overall a great product.

Had issues, but was good otherwise
By A. George
I bought this item 4 weeks ago, installed it and set it up to use with Media Portal. The image quality was good, channel changes were quick and the amount of free to air channels to be picked up was many. I had 2 issues though, 1 issue caused me to return the item.First issue was the supplied remote and IR receiver. I could just never get it to work. The remote is not the highest of quality but it would do the job it's built for. I just, unfortunately, couldn't get it to do that! But it was fine, I have a separate IR receiver and Harmony remote I was going to use anyway. I'd recommend if your serious about building and using a media center, you get a decent remote and IR receiver anyway.Second issue was that I could not use this card for long. When it worked it was great, but it caused my media center to start producing blue screen errors. The culprit was 'TBS6984.sys'. I updated to the latest drivers. Tried reinstalling the card, making sure it was sitting right, but no joy. This caused my media center to blue screen within 30 mins or less and became unusable. For this reason I had to return it, my first return to Amazon, who I must say we're extremely quick and no hassle.I do recommend this product, but I would keep in mind some potential issues you would need to really test out by using this card for a certain length of time, I didn't use it so much to start with and as a result took me 3 days to notice the blue screen errors.
