It wasn't that long ago that we were amazed that the NTSC requirement
from Windows XP Media Center Edition was still a fact of life in Windows Vista Beta 2. This really bothered us for obvious reasons, like we have room for a NTSC card in our ultimate HD Media Center PC
. Even if we did it, would take up the space for one of our ATSC tuners.
Lucky for us the
unofficial word is out, Jay P. Kapur of the Media Center TV Team confirmed at AVS Forum that Vista will not need an NTSC Tuner!
