Judging by comments around here, AVerMedia's AVerTV Bravo Hybrid PCIe seems to be a pretty popular little piece. For those still wondering if it's worth the $80 price of admission, PC Magazine has the final word (hint: the answer is "yes"). Reviewers were pleased with the built-in QAM support and real-time output to iPod functionality, and of course, the relatively low price was certainly cheered. Installation was a snap, the bundled plug-in for enabling QAM support worked pretty much as advertised and the FM tuning was a welcome extra. If you've been looking to slap a TV tuner into your PC, it seems this one may be a very solid choice.
