Diamond PVR560 XtremeTV Tuner Card Review

Posted Image

Have you seen any previews of TV shows coming up and got all excited, thinking this is something that you would really like to see? But when the day finally arrives, you are either busy or just plain forgot about it and then reality hits - you missed it! I know how frustrating and disappointing this can be, because I have done it many times myself. I need to find something that will take care of this problem for me. Perhaps this review of the Diamond PVR560 Xtreme TV tuner card will shed some light on a solution for me. This is a somewhat watered-down version as it does not come with the mini-firefly remote. Diamond Multimedia has made a product that just may be the solution to those missed shows and a whole lot more. Is it truly extreme? Let us find out.

I might buy this. I am looking to build a mini itx \ micro atx PVR...
EDIT: and this dose not take up the full PCI bracket length (whatever its called)

You might want to look @ this:

Mainly because it comes with a remote control. I have that exact card & it works great. ;)

Hauppauge (pronounced hop-hog/hoppog for those that dont understand it!) are really good, but are often pricey. It'd be interesting to see how this card and the equivalent Hauppauge compare :) sadly I'm not up to date with that malarkey :(
