If you are looking to build or upgrade your HTPC case, how could you exclude a TV card? The WinTV PVR-350 allows you to record live TV, pause it, and even burn it to a CD or DVD. It appears that this may be a true all-in-one solution, so let’s check it out to see if that’s the case.

Bundled Goods

Let’s take a look at the bundled items:

Here we see the FM antennae (pink) and the IR sensor. The FM antennae is connected with a coaxial screw on connector and the IR sensor plugs into the card with a plug similar to what a set of headphones would use.

You can see here, the RCA/S-Video input connector. This allows you to connect either a VCR, DVD player or virtually any other piece of hardware with video out that uses RCA jacks or S-Video.

The remote is setup nicely with numerous buttons for all sorts of uses. You can switch between TV, videos, music, pictures and radio. You also have all the buttons that any remote would have as well such as channel up and down, volume up and down, play, fast forward, rewind, play, stop, pause, skip up and down.

Here you have the very thorough manual and the driver disk.
