Wondeful Tv tuner card

Here goes
the tv tuner card is awesome
all you have to do is plug in a proper jack and wire if the reception quality is bad what can a tv tuner card do

if you dont believe me connect it to a dish (reliance, airtel so on)

the setting are quite hard to understand at first
if you are watching tv then only you change settings for the tv
if you are listening to a radio then only you can change settings for the radio

scanning is also good
i used a normal 25 rs splitter and a 8rs plain jack (go to google images and type tv jack) not those big ones that come with the tv use simple PLAIN TAIL Ja...

i used a normal 25 rs splitter and a 8rs plain jack (go to google images and type tv jack) not those big ones that come with the tv use simple PLAIN TAIL Jacks

note you cannot scan radio using a cable wire
the device comes with an antenna which gives good reception when placed at a proper direction

the device also comes with a usb extendable cable
connect it to the back ports of the cpu not the front ones

it also comes with connectors you can connect a dish to it

the device allows you to choose your favourite channels

the remote works with windows media center

all you have to do is install the application and the REMOTE AND DEVICE driver properly

the device also allows you to schedule your recordings

time shifting allows you to rewind your tv but consumes huge disc space

you can watch the channel in 4:3 and 16:9 ratio

you can also preview the channel before watching it

you can change the color accordingly as movie, dynamic , standard etc

as far as i know
use a proper cable and jack
never use a splitter if you dont know how to use it

update
note a new version of the software was uploaded at iballs site download the software and driver from their site

Good item for hostel boys/girls...

After buying the product, I was really surprised by the compactness of the product. The image quality is good enough for me, not remotely near any tv quality, but still good enough for 1200 bucks tv (certainly better than cheap Chinese tvs). If you watch it from 5 feet distance, you won't even notice some grid lines which usually comes if the signal is not too strong.

Cons: 1. doesn't fit properly in USB port, so if you move your laptop while connected, picture quality goes down.
2. pathetic remote, some buttons in mine don't even work, but its much easier to operate by a mouse, so i didn'...

3. if the screen goes totally white (like in some ads), huge noise with deafening sound comes. don't know whether it's a device fault or signal problem.

Good Device except for a few minor issues...

I ordered it on 24th Jan, 2013 around 12 30 am and received it on 28th Jan, 2013 evening. I paid by COD for the first time:) Flipkart service is good as usual.

Now about the device... I have tried this device in my Windows 7 laptop with Airtel DTH connection about 3 or 4 times. I'm able to watch the channels and record it without any major issues. Still I haven't tried with Cable connection. So I am giving a short review now and I will update with more details after trying different features...

Pros:
------
* Very Compact design and easily portable, so ideal to use with laptops.
* Cables/...

Pros:
------
* Very Compact design and easily portable, so ideal to use with laptops.
* Cables/connectors are provided with the device to connect to set top box (STB) or DVD player, Cable TV, etc... So don't have to search for cables in shops
* Gives decent quality video with maximum resolution of 576p, i.e., 720 x 576 (we can't expect much higher quality for this price range)
* The provided software in CD has lot of features (still I need to explore more).
* FM Recording

Cons:
-------
* I'm not happy with FM reception using the FM Antenna(the long white cable in the box) provided with the device. Even though the signal reception is bad at my home, at the same place where my Nokia 2626 and my Motorola Defy receives a particular channel clearly, this tuner with the given FM antenna does not receive the signal properly. Only if I place the FM antenna cable in a particular position, the channel plays clearly. A slight movement in the FM antenna cable disrupts the FM signal and I start getting noise.
Anyway I would comment again after checking in a place where there is good signal reception.
* The software provided has lot of features, but there are some minor issues or bugs with that. Once I installed the 1. Drivers 2. TV Application 3. Remote Application and restarted my Dell lap, my Bluetooth software provided by Dell crashed. And also another software (Intel Turbo boost monitor) crashed. I have just solved the Bluetooth problem temporarily by uninstalling the bluetooth software provided by Dell and using the default bluetooth that comes with Windows 7. I will contact iBall support team regarding this issue and provide my comment later.
* My laptop restarted 3 times (after getting BlueScreenOfDeath) till now.. Once when I tried to scan the channel, once when i tried operating the remote, and one more which i don't remember exactly...

I read from reviews that the iBall support team will provide good support when contacted. I hope that the software issue will be sorted out by them.

Note:
a) By the size of the Cons paragraph which i have mentioned don't think that there are more cons :) I have just explained in detail. I will explain the Pros in detail after trying out more...
b) For those who feel it difficult to set up the connection to STB or Cable, u can find a detailed review and explanation of the features in this forum: broadbandforum.co/topic/53928-exclusive-iball-usb-tv-tuner-card-review-with-pics-and-video/ or just search for "iball claro tv tuner review" in Google and u will get it as the first result :) Enjoy!!!

Value for Money

My first purchase at Flipkart.com Delivery time was amazing within 28 hours i received it COD. Now coming to the product its a cheap addition to your laptop / PC to watch TV or listen to FM at liesure time.
To all those who complained about non working remote just see that the batteries in remote are inserted properly and check the remote with a mobile phone camera by pointing at camera when you press remote buttons the ir led glows in camera screen. Also while using remote remember to point remote at the tv tuner and not on the screen, even i got confused many times.
Pros: Good for DTH (...

Pros: Good for DTH (have to check DTH signal yet), Comes with wide options to connect to other devices.

Cons: The antenna supplied does not catch any TV channels, FM channels are captured but voice is not clear, it would be better if we purchase an external small FM antenna to connect to the tv tuner. When you connect cable tv to tuner select input as cable and not antenna you will get more channels but the no of channels received in iball tv tuner are less than received on conventional TV. Dont know why. Recording is good must need to further check settings so that less space is consumed.

Overall a good product for daily half hr - 1 hr viewing or occasional viewing , viewing for more time may generate more heat and damage the card.
