    Hi Guys,

    I am contemplating buying this to connect to the PC which will in turn be connected to my LCD via the DVI input.

    Does anyone know if there is an improvement in PQ or is it best to be a normal Freeview box such as the Sony model available.

    How are you planning on connecting it ? Wouldn't you be better off with a Nebula card in the PC ?

    cwick,
    I was going to connect o the PC via the USB.Then PC to LCD via DVI (What a mouth full!!).

    I didn't realise there was a PCI card which I would actually prefer. However, if the PQ is better connecting to the RGB on the LCD then I'll obviously go with that option.

    The netgem doesn't send any picture info over the USB - it's for ethernet connection etc only. PQ from the nebula will certainly be better.

    The iPlayer has Component Out as well as RGB and S Video.

    You'll get a great picture anyway.

    :)
