Hi,
Can anyone recommend best USB digital terrestrial decoder?
I need the most efficient with hardware mpeg decoding and using least cpu/pc resources. Not impressed with the performance of a Hauppauge Nova USB (100% cpu usage on a 3.3GHz Semperon!). A Twinham StarSat on the same system works well (not trying to run both together), is the Twinham terrestral equivalent as good? Other models I have seen are Nebula or the Hauppauge DEC200.

Thanks in advance.

What Hauppauge is that you are using a_bluebird, and what software?

I've got a Hauppauge NovaT2 (USB2), I think it uses less than 30% on an Athlon XP2600 (mobile) with the supplied software (Win TV).
