This question goes for all owners for all systems.

For those of you who use the computer monitor as your main or optional screen to play video games.

Which USB Video Tuner do you use???

For those who doesn't know what a USB Video Tuner here is a explanation:

With this item you can connect any system (DC, Xbox, PS2, GC) and use either your desktop monitor or you laptop flat screen to play video games or even watch TV.

When I was deciding which TV tuner card to buy, I sifted through a lot of reviews. It's tough to find a single positive review for a USB tuner.

Here are a handful reviews I've stumbled upon for some of the more popular models, the majority of which aren't particularly positive. Even the ones that aren't entirely negative generally include some significant complaints.

I'm talking about a USB Tuner as above your post but I can work with what you show me, But I did not see a USB port for my laptop and they didn't say in their description of it was compatible with windows xp.
