I've had this stick for around 6 months now. Upon installation on Vista (32 bit), I only installed the driver and not the viewing software. Pinnacle want a subscription for getting program listings every day, when Windows Media Center does this for nothing and I find it really good and easy to use anyway. The stick comes with a useless small ariel connection, for using the included ariel and also an adaptor for using a standard tabletop or roof ariel. This adaptor sticks out a fair bit and is therefore quite easy to break (yes, mine's is broken already). So in conclusion, the stick produces a good picture and sound, but dont use the pinnacle tv software and unless you're going to leave the ariel plugged in all the time, do expect the adaptor connection to break.
