not many people use usb hd tv tuner & one thing i can't understand is how the hell this avermedia can be called a hd tv tuner if it does not have a hdmi input port.HD recording from a HD set top box requires hdmi port.

HD because it bears a resolution of 1920x1080p.

tell me how are you going to record an incoming video stream with a resolution of 1920*1080 if there is no input to support such a stream!!only DVI & HDMI port supports digital 1080i stream of HD channels(no over-the-air channel in the world telecasts in 1080p).D-Sub port can also handle 1080i but it is analogue.this is just a marketing gimmick like those sata3 hard disks as no mechanical hard disk can even cross speed of sata1 but still it is advertised.any tv tuner with no hdmi/dvi port is useless for HD channel video capturing/viewing in its original quality.

Right off the assembly line
For your knowledge .. you cannot record from HDMI port of your STB , it is HDCP protect ..
HD Tv tuner means HD play / recording .. ( in H.264 format ) which only this tuner support in USB at this price.. there are other tuners also but not available in india .. you need to buy from ebay us ..

Hi,
I want to buy a TV Tuner that will work with set-up boxes from airtel and tata. Can anyone suggest a decent TV Tuner card?
Thanks.
