But if it is the Diamond model, it comes with better specs and a remote...so no problems with that. Diamond's model is 130 dollars retail on their site.
In for 1 PCI version....HW decoding is a no brainer.
Look at the pictures, it's definitely the Diamond version of the card. I don't see too many differences from the ATI versions.
Here's the site for the 650PCI
Also on that site QAM isn't listed as a feature for the 650PCI, and is for the 600PCIe
And one last thing, it also lists the 650PCI as dual tuner and the 600PCIe as single tuner. Myth confirmed!
Both come with a remote, and the PCI version comes with the breakout box for the AV inputs (S-Vid, Composite vid, stereo audio)
(EDIT!!!! It doesn't look like the Woot version comes with a remote, since it isn't listed on the box...)
I have a ton of experience with TV tuners and this is a really sweet deal... go for the 650PCI NOW if you are on the fence, you won't regret it, especially if you've already got a version of Windows that has Media Center.
