Notes

For Analog TV reception, you need an analog cable TV connection. If you have a digital cable set top box or a satellite box, you can connect via either Composite or S-Video inputs.

For ATSC over-the-air digital TV reception, a high gain antenna is recommended. To check the ATSC TV broadcasts in your area, go to TitanTV.com and enter your postal code.

Depending on the strength of your antenna, you might not be able to receive all broadcasts listed at TitanTV.

To watch clear QAM channels, you should use Windows Media Center from Windows 7 or Windows 8. Clear QAM digital cable TV channels are not available on all cable networks. For more information, contact your cable TV provider.

ATSC TV recordings are not 100% compatible with DVD, and therefore you cannot burn them directly to a DVD.

Dual Tuner TV Board

Better digital TV reception! Receive more digital TV channels, with better reception.
Dual digital TV receivers for ATSC or clear QAM. Watch and record two ATSC or clear QAM digital TV programs at the same time. Watch and record all ATSC and QAM formats, including the high definition 1080i format. Clear QAM digital TV channels are TV channels which are broadcast "in the clear" on your cable TV network.
Dual built-in hardware MPEG-2 encoders for recording analog cable TV, for the best system performance. Watch and record two cable TV programs at the same time. When recording analog cable TV, the dual built in hardware MPEG-2 encoders let your PC run at full speed.

Windows Media Center compatible. Now supports Windows 7 and Windows 8 (with Media Center add on).
Single slot PCI Express (PCIe) X1 board, half height.

ATSC Over-the-Air Digital TV

Watch one ATSC digital TV program while recording another ATSC program to your PC's hard disk using high quality MPEG-2. TV recordings will typically consume 5 GB of disk space per hour for ATSC high definition.
