It's pretty good actually compared to other computer cards I've seen. Watching tv live is quite good, only a slight graininess in some instances. Recording tv then playing back there is a slight degradation over watching live, but it's still quite good. I have a DVR on my satellite dish, but I can't transfer files off it's hard drive, so I'm transferring World Superbike and MotoGP races off the DVR by playing it back into the m9700, and recording it again. The quality on that, recording a recording playback is again slightly worse than the original playback, and I can see a minor frame rate issue in really fast shots, but overall it's good.
I got the tuner so I could transfer stuff to my hard drive from my DVR, then burn them to dvd. I wasn't expecting great quality due to other tv tuners showing fuzzy text and color bleeding, but it's actually better than I'd expected. I'm using digital satellite signal input though so my feed is pretty good also...
I'd give it an 8 out of 10.
It is cool though to have a device I can use as an extra tv or playback device that's so portable, and it only cost a bit more to include it.
