Compro's VideoMate T750 is a short PCI card TV tuner, supporting both terrestrial analogue and DVB-T standards (including HD 1,080i) as well as FM radio.

Having both freeview and analogue TV tuners allows you to watch analogue and digital channels simultaneously, although we can't imagine ever wanting to do this. Maybe the Compro VideoMate T750 having dual DVB-T tuners would have been better, allowing you to record and watch something else at the same time.

The Compro VideoMate T750 is supplied with plenty of software, and you can perform all the usual PVR tricks with it: time-shifting, pausing and scheduled recording. Picture-in-picture is also available, letting you keep an eye on four channels at once. The Compro VideoMate T750 can control PC power-up and power-down, which is good if you're looking to save power while you're away.

You can burn straight to DVD. The Compro VideoMate T750 has no automatic aspect-ratio correction or support for interactive services.

It's a pity the VideoMate lacks a Media Center-style interface of its own for those that run plain XP, as close interaction with the screen is often required. That aside, the Compro VideoMate T750 worked well as a PC-based TV PVR system. See also our review of the HD-capable Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-4000.
