I presume it is because it has no Freeview tuner?

Good piece of kit still, especially if you want to record say Sky or Cable programs or capture old VHS recordings using the video capture feature, as it has onboard encoding, so won't use up so much of your PCs processor power doing it!
I looked at these a good while back, and they were about 125 quid, but like all PC hardware, times move on!

You would need another card or USB device for Freeview though if you wanted the true PVR functionality that it offers with analogue,. and I suppose I would want it all in one piece of kit too, so I don't have to fill up all the PCI slots on a machine! :-(

Same price at Amazon too:

Make sure you have the right price, as it is also on Marketplace dealers too

Doesn't seem to work on Vista
