Diamond Multimedia XtremeTV PVR550 PCI Power Pack Review

Posted on 24 July 2005 by

I’ve posted to our Review Section a hot off the presses look at Diamond Multimedia’s new PVR offering the XtremeTV PVR550 PCI “power pack” bundle. It aims to be an all in one DIY PVR in a box (just add PC), at $130 MSRP, does it pass byopvr muster?

This review took quite a while as it’s almost like 4 mini reviews all bundled into one: a review of the conexant “Falcon” based PVR550 PCI hardware MPEG encoding tuner card, a review of SnapStream’s Beyond Media HTPC suite, a review of BeyondTV Subscriber Edition, and a review of the FireFly RF PC remote control.
