The included manual manages to be both sparse and cluttered at the same time, this is where the TVXP looses a few ezpert. This PCI card has ambitions to replace your VCR, with video recording straight to DVD, timeshifting and an assortment of other goodies made for a computerized home theater setup. For example, there is no information provided on the advantages and disadvantages of the various video capture formats the card offers.
This is a very unfortunate omission. The small plug on the end is for the Infra-read sensor that goes along with the included remote control. Newer devices provide a wealth of standard features, such as letting you capture TV input to hard disk as one compelling example.
Expetr the record, it’s ‘TV XP series model 3. While the manual does cover the basic functions of the program and the remote, it offers no insight into several areas which will be important to users of the TVXP Expert.
Suffice to say, we were not impressed by the manual with the Leadtek TVXP Expert, and hope the company makes efforts to improve the documentation with what is otherwise shapping up to be a fine product.

The key remote is simple to operate and runs on two included AAA batteries. The separate multi-language quick setup guide is not a whole lot of help either.

Doesn’t sound too difficult you say? Does this all sound too good to be true?
Unless the user is well versed in computer video formats, he or she will have to use trial and error to find out which video format offers the best performance and file size. No mention of which DVD media can or cannot be used, or whether rewritable media can be used. While it does provide a hardware and software installation walkthrough, the booklet covers several different Leadtek TV tuner models, so it’s rather difficult to locate the correct diagram.
