Leadtek launches high end TV tuner card Leadtek Research has announced the launch of a high end TV tuner card, the WinFast PVR2100 which supports "analog TV reception including PAL, NTSC and SECAM, while it can also receive FM radio. With built-in MPEG2 decoding hardware, users can record videos with the minimal system workload."
The tuner card also includes Leadtek's exclusive Winfast PVR2 software that allows users to change their settings and preferences in a "two-layer user friendly menu." The "Live Broadcasting" software "can turn a PC into a TV broadcasting station and let the users share their videos with their family and friends." The "DirectBurn" software "allows users to transfer home videos and movies from camcorders, VHS tapes, and personal DVDs into a blank CDs or DVDs," the company added.

The card also uses TwinView technology that allows for PIP (picture in picture), POP (picture on picture) and PAP (picture and picture) viewing options, features not standard of TV tuners.

Leadtek's PVR software sucks the big one. Or maybe they've improved dramatically in the past few years.

I'd just settle for more reliable PVR software from Leadtek with their products.
