    I use a Chaintech Personal Cinema nVidia GeForce 5600X 128MB video card.

    The DVR software, DVD software, and remote control are subpar compared to other companies. WinDVR especially is buggy, has terrible technical support, and barely works even as bundled software. I have had problems using almost all advanced features, even getting audio to be consistent and work.

    Because DVR software is not exactly compatible across all VGA cards, should i consider myself stuck?

    Is there anyway I can use better software along with this Personal Cinema card? And if so, what software is the best?

    Are these guaranteed to be compatible with my personal cinema?
