Default Ordered a TV tuner! (short rant included)

Leadtek WinFast PxPVR1200 PCI Express 1.0a/1.1 Interface Turner Card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16815122010

I ordered this yesterday because I was tired of not having a TV in my room, so now I can watch TV on my PC easily

I know this may not be the best TV Tuner card out there, but this was all I could afford. I also wanted PCI-E x1 because my only open PCI slot is too close to my GPU's HSF.

If all goes well, I should have this by tonight actually. It is currently sitting in a UPS warehouse that is no more than 250 miles from my house, and should be leaving there shortly.

<RANT>

By the way, does anyone else think its stupid that Newegg offers the UPS Guaranteed 3 day service, but they don't attempt to do deliveries on weekends? I ordered this yesterday (Thursday) At about 1 PM EST, so that means I pretty much have to wait until Saturday (If I don't get it today), BUT Newegg doesn't deliver on weekends. So, does this mean 3 day guaranteed service? Nope. I'm half tempted to write up an email and complain. UPS delivers on weekends, so why doesn't Newegg? Sunday I can understand being a non-delivery day, but Saturday?

</RANT>

Cool

I have a Happaugue WinTV one... I forget the model... it was $99 at radioshack with a $60 MIB.

I don't use it much, maybe I should sell it.
