  1. Very Serious Question TV Wonder 200 or 600?
    Alright i have 2 choices soon, i can buy the TV wonder 200 for only 30+ dollars:

    or i could buy the 600 for 100+ dollars:

    Plus it comes with a neat remote lol.

    Anyway, searching around on youtube, the 200 seems to be the same as the 600, i guess the 600 is more updated, but watching some footage from the 200 it seems to be just fine.

    Now my questions:

    #1 I guess the most serious question is, well reading this:

    TV Converter Box, If you receive TV using an antenna and your TV is not digital. I use a Antenna for my Gaming TV, so if i buy the Converter BOX would i still be able to use the 200 TV wonder version, or does the 600 version fare better, or whatever one i use, i still need to update my gaming tv or just box a converter box?

    #2 Has anyone use the TV Wonder 200, and if so how is it and should i buy it rather then the visiontek one?

    Thanks!

    Two question.

    Your links are dead.

    And I'm surprised you haven't checked Hauppauge WinTV cards.

    Give it a try, perhaps?

    not familiar with either, but I have an analog card for my laptop. You will need a converter eventually for whatever card you have if they are analog and you want off the air signals. In my experience, off the air is not that good. It is better to plug it into an analog connection if possible.
