ATI TV Wonder HD 600 USB PC TV Tuner

First off, this receives only OVER-THE-AIR digital and HD signals/channels. So if you have any cable/satellite channels like ESPN HD or DISCOVERY (any non free/basic digital/HD channels) you WON'T be able to watch them with this USB Tuner, since they are not OVER-THE-AIR signals/channels.

On the other hand the ATI TV Wonder HD 600 USB Tuner is amazing, the quality of the channels is very very good (you also need an HD Graphic Card / Video card).

The bad think is that the remote doesn't have the numeric key pad on it, you browse trough the GUIDE.

DTV Scam from DTV themselves

On March 5th 2009 I ordered a digital converter box (DCB) coupon from dtv2009.gov, I received it on March 31, 2009. Today April 2nd, 2009 I went to Fry's Electronics to buy a DCB and they said that the card was declined (I have never used the coupon before), the Fry's people said that that has happened many times, so I called the phone on the back of the DTV coupon/card. It turned out that the number on the back of the coupon 1-888-DTV-2009, is to order a coupon ONLY, PATHETIC BEYOND BELIEVE. So I called DTV Hotline and FCC Consumer Center: 1-888-CALLFCC, and after 28 minutes I got connected with (Nancy) after I explained my problem she said that this hotline doesn't handle that problem and hanged up on me. So now that I have order a coupon and got an (EMPTY) coupon, I can't order again. So some employee in this whole DTV program got $40 bucks just like that, and I got the middle finger. If anyone has the same problem please make your voice heard.
