I bought this TV tuner about 2 year ago because it was quite cheap. I believe I paid about $10 after rebates. This is one of those things where you get what you pay for.
The picture quality is mediocre. Itâ€™s neither good nor bad. Itâ€™s perfectly watchable, but itâ€™s not crisp and clear. The audio and video both work fine. They are synchronized well and all of that too.
Via an included adapter, you can get S-Video and Composite inputs. The quality of those inputs is about the same as the TV quality. A nice feature is the radio tuner on board. So you can connect to a radio antenna and get radio on your computer. The problem is that the radio jack is RCA, which isnâ€™t convenient. You can solder a wire across to the coax connection and use that as a radio antenna hook up. Itâ€™s fairly easy to do, but you have to know how to solder at least somewhat.
The tuner comes with a remote, but itâ€™s an awkward shape and by far nothing amazing. It has lots of buttons, so that may be positive or negative for you. I havenâ€™t actually used the remote, so I canâ€™t say how functional it is.
If you just need a cheap tuner for a computer, this might not be a bad choice. But if you need quality, stay far away.
