Wow....and I paid too much for my Phillips cam a year or so ago (ashamed at
price paid !!!....lol....oh well its only money....what good is it if ya dont
spend it).
Actually I sort of wish now that I had purchased the Winnov setup. They
"look" exactly the same (board and all) BUT, the onboard ROMs are different.
My experience with support for the Phillips is/was horrible.
I was browsing for upgraded drivers but none were offered (maybe they are now
though).....and since the Winnov website offered later drivers, I figured
what the heck they will probably work.....NOT.
I installed them and then my audio didnt work and the aspect ratio of my
video was all messed up....looked like I had gained 25 lbs.......in my face
alone. I reinstalled the Phillips drivers, but it didnt fix the problem. I
called Phillips several times to no avail and finally got reffered to Winnov.
There was a software engineer there that walked me through the fixes, told me
that even though the boards look the same they werent ....and even went so
far as to give me his home number to call if I had any more problems
(ABSOLUTELY UNHEARD OF !!)........I'm happy with the Phillips perforemance
but if I had it to do again, I would get the Winnov........

Just my thoughts on the subject....thats what the list is for.....
