Its reviews like these from Bit-Tech that prevent me from having a lot of pritty looking door stops and paper weights ;) ;)

Basically it urinates all over this offering :D

may just go for a USB stick version, cant be much worse than the PCI card variants, can they?
Originally Posted by steveo_mcgJust had a quick read, that 500 is basically two usb based cards and a host controller so you could always just find out what the chips on the card are and get the usb variant. On that note does any one use a usb tv card, are they as good as pci based cards?

Also I found driver version V1.0.2.0228 which are suppose to work for vista on the kworld site although not easy to find, obviously if these are your drivers you can forget what I said. Having owned a few tv cards I can say kworld are poor on driver updates and really bad to get working from my experience but you can say that about many tv card manufacturers.
A few things I would like to say if you get a nova-t 500 watch out if you use linux as there is a new version known as a nova-t 500td which uses the same name as the old one on the box but I believe there are no linux drivers yet. Also nova-t 500 is pci card not pci-e, as someone else stated that its really 2 usb tuners on a pci card which has caused alot people on the huappauge forums problems with standby/wake up issues and random BSOD, but the newer version is suppose to be a proper pci card product.
