A Dirt Cheap QAM Tuner For Media Center

I picked up an ASUS Combo 210e tuner card for $38. Out of the box it does not support Clear Qam in MCE but all you need to do is use the VistaView drivers and patch available at the following link:

Sweet! I can pick up 4 of these for the price of a HD Homerun.

    Jeff,
    I am having a problem with this tuner. I have a Dell Inspiron 530 with Vista Ultimate. Was working fine with the WinTV-1600 but wanted to add an additional tuner. Only for the SD recording with dual tuners. May add ATSC once I get more disk space.

    I installed the Gateway drivers and then pluged in the card. I got errors after reboot “Windows Media Center Receiver Service stopped working and was closed”. And now Media Center claims that I have no tuners, even though I can see both tuners in device manager.

    Do you have any ideas what could I do to make these two tuners work?
