    I had that card and I think it might be around the same as the ati tv wonder majin/forcer

    I would recommend you give the LEADTEK tv tuner a look/see... the deluxe one costs about as much as the hauppage you have listed forcer plus it has FM stereo connection and it also has an IR remote control... :)

    Image Quality should be about the same as well...

    I have the WIN TV tuner card and find it reasonable but a bit blurry on full screen mode, I also run it at 1024x768 but not on a crt screen. I have connected mine to the outside roof areal and I think a lot depends on the signal you get. If your tv gets a good reception then you should get a good picture.
