Used for analog-to-digital home video conversion. With some work, it did what I needed. Good PVR.

  • Summary: This PVR did what I needed it to. I recorded all of our old analog home videos using this thing. The quality is great! There were two problems I ran into: 1) The driver that came on the DVD wasn't recognized on the laptop I used (Lenovo W540).

Works better than expected

  • Excerpt: This product works for me better than expected. I am able to copy my personal VHS tapes and also uncopyrighted cable shows. My build for the computer is an ASrock motherboard - that has a PCIE2 slot - with a AMD A10-5700 CPU and 8 Gigs of ram.

DON'T MESS AROUND WITH ANY OTHER CARD!!

AmazonBuyer, Amazon
24 December 2014
  • Summary: Bought 2 of these cards and superb performance from both of them. Captures HD content in .ts format. 1 Hour of HD content will be just over 6GB. Card does all of the work to leave CPU to do what it does. Heavy duty cables included. You will not be sorry with this card.

Dual cards are NOT supported...

Ron Peterson, Amazon
15 November 2014
  • Summary: Although this was an excellent buy used, it was a total disaster for me. I use Microsoft Media Center for my DVR/TV viewing with DirecTV and sadly, dual cards (STBs) will not work in WMC.

Disappointed

Jay Ryan, Amazon
23 July 2014
  • Summary: Thought this would work so I could turn my PC into a DVR, but it's not going to work for me. Had trouble getting card and software to recognize one another. Instructions weren't clear on what slot to use til I finally found right one, by trial.

Works well once software setup correctly

  • Excerpt: The hardware works well once you get the software installed and set up correctly. The Colossus that I received had a third cable to plug into the back that contained composite and S-Video connector. I have a comcast Pace STB device.
  • Cons: Difficult To Install

Excellent HD Live TV Capture Card (HD TV Tuner)

angelt,, TigerDirect.com
9 February 2014
  • Summary: T've had this HD TV Tuner Card since March, 2011, with no problems what so ever. I use it mainly to record HD TV from a Directv DVR. I use the ArcSoft Showbiz software, that came with the card to record HD Live TV. I've use it with all the different connections that has, they all work fine.

Almost colossal

  • Summary: Hardware integrates better (far better) than previous Hauppage cards -- especially the dirvers. Software is still a bit glitchy. Captures are excellent.

HD only

Randall Carlson, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: This is a great grabber if you want HD, 720p or 1080p. I was doing 480p ntsc video and the quality was terrible. In general, the hdmi protocol has a problem anyway. It spreads the noise on SD video.
