I've had an Autumnwave GT since the second software update. I use it with a Sony XP laptop. It has a great tuner (5th gen) but don't rely on the small supplied antenna, you won't get much with it. I...

The OnAir will only provide 1080 through it's onboard OTA tuner, which is a very good tuner indeed. Capturing video from another source, Satellite/cable etc will only render at 480 since the...

That wouldn't even be possible with the T-451. I can point my antenna north toward Hamilton for 15-1 repeater and with the Autumnwave GT also get most of Buffalo and Toronto without moving the rotor...

Ryan again to the rescue

Just a word of warning to updating the GT program, make sure you exit from timer and remote control programs first (icons in right system tray). If you are using the tuner up to the point of update,...

expansys.ca supplies the GT through Mobileplanet in Bloomington IL. They charged me $213.91 CDN plus 7% sales tax. So work out the exchange and you can see the better price. I would be surprised if...

City-TV scan

The GT cannot get a lock on City-DT from here. As with the Samsung 451 (one to two bars) the GT scans for 53-1, locks OK but the PSIP Timeout is the best it can do. The signal is too directional even...

Sorry, I lied! :o I don't even think about City-DT anymore so I never even tried. I might just give it a try but I don't think it will work. When I do a channel scan, I aim the antenna at Buffalo and...

What I'm really interested in is the CPU usage on the Hauppauge. The review posted earlier mentioned very high levels, to the choking point. Also, I don't see any other video inputs other than the...
