    I just built myself a MCE 2004 box, I need to purchase a Remote and
    possibly a new tuner card. The Happuage cards are a little expensive,
    I'm wondering if anyone has had much luck with the AVerMedia M179 or
    AVerMedia M150 Media Center Edition 2004 (both available from
    newegg).
    How hard was the setup...is there still a video issue? Are the drivers
    easily obtainable?

    I'm an MCE newb, so...any help is greatly appreciated.

    The m179 has a nasty picture quality (like you should sue the company bad) from the tuner... don't buy it.

    The m150 is supposed to be as good as the Hauppauge pvr-250/350 but nobody on the freakin planet has the drivers. Seriously, I've NEVER not found a driver until now. WTF?

    OK, so it's OEM and newegg shouldn't be selling these things, but somebody in the OEM world should help us out here.

    I have a PVR-250 in my other Media Center PC and it's worth the big bucks just to eliminate hassle.

    Actually, the guys at Avermedia are excited and surprised to hear of all the
    enthuisasm about their MCE-compatible products.

    I have been corresponding, and you should see driver releases within a very
    short time along with wider availability of their tuner products.

    They are a vendor who really does care about the users, we just needed to
    get our message to them first!
