The quality (audio + video) are terrible on my new Hauppauge WinTV-HVR1600. I'm connecting the output from my Bell ExpressVu satellite (not digital) composite into the card and the results are pretty nasty.

I've tried the software they included and Windows Media Center with no good results. The quality is probably 1/10th of the quality I see on my actual TV with the exact same output. There is intermittent crackling affecting all channels.

Is it just because I purchased a cheap tv tuner and it needs replacement to be a better quality?

ive used about 3 different tuners, they all have bad quality (mostly svideo/composite/coax)

i think the solution is to go for something that can capture hdmi

black magic intensity or something along those lines
