Just today I bought a LifeView TV Tuner card from Dick Smith. And it's great too! It does exactly what it should do... show TV or Video input in a window on the desktop.
One gripe, though: Clicking a button brings up a window listing all available channels at the left, and on the right is a add/remove list of your 'favourite' channels. You can then arrange these in order, and clicking 'OK' should save this list and let you go up/down the channels in the custom order you specified.
However on my machine, it doesn't save your channel order preferences after you click OK. As soon as you open up the window again, the channels are in exactly the same order. No matter how much you try to rearrange them, or add/remove them in a specific order, you just can't get them into a 'custom list'.
Has anybody else used this PCI card, and had the same problem?

My system: Duron 1200, 240mb RAM, 20gb HDD with PCI Lifeview TV Tuner on Windows XP Home, with the latest drivers and updates.

From memory they are always in numerical order?
I must admit I prefer them that way, never tried to change them.

I have had one of those cards for years, goes fine as you say.
