Free: Fusion 3 Gold HDTV tuner card
#1
Free to any CQC owner (but you pay shipping): 1 Fusion 3 Gold HDTV Tuner card. It's a software-based HD Tuner card, I got it when I had a dedicated SageTV Box. It worked fine for a while, then when I reformatted my HD it started fighting with my AMD/VIA chipset, so I opted to get a hardware based card.

Just like the other stuff I got (ie, NetCallerID boxes) - Pretty sure it works fine. I don't have the heart to throw it away cuz it was working fine until the reformat and the subsequent driver issues.

I've been mandated to clear out a certain chunk of the parts closet by Friday, so if I don't hear from anyone by by tomorrow evening, i'll give it away on the SageTV forums.

Ummm....not sure exactly what you mean by software HD card....there is no encoding in HD capture, so isn't it just a hardware tuner card?

Does it have an output? If so I am interested.

No output. I have had one myself for 3 years. Despite the QAM warning it will tune my free HD cable channels fine.

QAM decoding is under development due to the variations in Cable service providers. QAM256 generally has been reported to work, although QAM64 still poses problems with the decoding software. FusionHDTV QAM decoding is limited to only the non-encrypted channels available (generally the OTA local stations).

HDTV tuner cards typically have no output - you use your PC's video card for the output.

IIRC, the myHD was the exception to this rule.
