"These new Pinnacle PCTV HD sticks now support encrypted digital cable channels " Um, what? I’m going to assume that’s a typo and it meant to say “NON-encrypted”…

Does this also run on HDCP hardware? And would it still run fine on vista on a P4 (yes I was so stupid to upgrade with a little too slow PC :frowning: ) I don’t really like Pinnacle but it seems to be a pretty good deal…

@ Afterburner I can’t say if it works on a P4 that uses Vista, but overall the company states that it works with the new operating system. From the pressrelease: ‘Both devices are fully certified for Windows Vistaâ„¢ and Windows® Media Center.’ Hope this helps a little, but ofcourse a simple press release can’t help you with that question if it works on your P4, you could send a mail with your question to Pinnacle maybe… Cheers, anyone knows the answer to his question?

And where are the non-beta drivers for x64 OS ? Shame for Pinnacle, not even one non-beta driver for x64 on any TV tuner product. :frowning: http://cdn.pinnaclesys.com/SupportFiles/PCTV%20Drivers/ReadmePCTV.htm I have a pci Pinnacle TV tuner and the beta driver is shi*. Work OK only on the ancient 32bit OS.
