I have the Play TV HD and yes the supplied software only does .AVI because it's lossless and the best form to capture albeit you need a fast system and fast HD's to avoid frame loss.

You can get a number of free programs that will capture and ones like Powervcr PowerDirector, WinDVR etc work great also.

I can't recall if what I'm about to do now is against the rules if so I'll PM you but go to www.vcdhelp.com and you can get both freeware and shareware plus other users of your card.

Good Luck

never use powervcr or windvr channel scan don't show all the channels [atleast in bangalore,india] misses quite a few of them.:(

try TVR from www.honestech.com better than windvr or powervcr
and in iuvcr use huffyuv's codec for video and mp3 for audio that one gave the best results 4 me :D

Concerning the lack of audio. Did you make sure that the line-in under Record of your volume mixer utility is turned on? A lot of times, people do have the Line-in under Volume turned on but often forget the Line-in under Record.
