Others have posted some good information, but I thought I'd add this: I've 
seen claims that the Avermedia A180 ships with Windows drivers that support 
ATSC but not QAM. The Linux drivers for the board, though, support both 
standards. If true (I can't verify it), this would be a rare case where the 
Linux drivers are superior to the Windows drivers.
