    The cable here is split up in four ways just for one for tv, internet, phone, and the two boxes one being a DVR unit. The other is the basic tuner box with the 75ohm output I had and will again tuesday have plugged into a vcr and out by RCA phono plugs to the tuner card. When trying the cable straight into the 75ohm connector on the card itself that apparently was intended for an analog antenna not for any digital input.

    I couldn't the exact model vcr again that lasted for about 20 good years of use! So I don't have any complaints there. Bought two and the first went back in 2013 replaced by a dvd recorder when no one had vhs with tuners! The AVerMedia Media Center card was also XP compatible but took the paid subscription tv not cable signal with that tried out as well.

    Need internet tv service with WMC apparently since that also failed to accept the cable signal back when seen on Vista and later opted out for 7. The message on the screen then showed "need paid subscription" or service at the time.

    When trying PowerDVD out back in the XP to Vista days that had been a great little player. I am not surprised to hear that Cyberlink subsequently added Blu Ray support since back then that the rather new media technology only having been out for a few years.(First introduced 2000-2002) I see you don't get that much with the Standard version but need at least the Pro version to worth it for the price.
    Unfortunately being on the north side of a high rise steel building, no antenna is going to work here.

    Well here in the states the only antennas seen these days are Dish! If you don't a cheapo analog to digital converter box for catching the over the air signal you get satellite Dish or Cable! Those converter boxed they first came out with when everybody had to start broadcasting in digital weren't even worth the effort! They wouldn't even last more then a month or two!

    One option the cable company here is watching shows online! When logged into your account you can bring up the tv/movies page and watch either regular shows on demand, free movies, or rent. The company also has it's own portable app for watching on the go. Works for smart phones, netbooks, tablets but not laptops as far as the app is concerned.

    The problem is that while I can easily see the laptop connect to the private network a care facility has for the loaner laptop they pass around I haven't been able to connect past that to the web. Otherwise I could set that up to simply watch from the account's tv and movie pages. It's actually a Quality of Life type issue for the person I know since they take the fixed income away leaving a small amount of cash for personal spending monthly with some of that paying for only the basic local stations on their cable set up.

    That player works great. The first one I've seen that will play BluRay from a disc. The only feature I couldn't find was resume. If you stop the playback, you go back to the beginning. Other than that, it's perfect.
