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.

The heart of our home entertainment system

Thomas Junk, Amazon
16 December 2014
  • Summary: At the heart of our home entertainment system. I got it to work just fine on Linux, too, even though that part is not for the faint-of-heart. Under Windows it's easy, though: Saw a lot of complaints about the software it ships with, I think it's not bad.

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.

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.

Pleasantly surprised

jk, Amazon
14 January 2014
  • Summary: I was reluctant to purchase this because of all of the negative reviews, however, after installing and using it, I have found that it works very well. I could not find any other HD-PVR card that would do what I wanted, so I decided to give this a try.

Was Happy, Then Realized Audio Drift Issue!!!

Dr. Malcolm, Amazon
10 November 2013
  • Summary: I was very happy with this device...but then when reviewing the converted videos, I noticed that sometimes the audio was delayed, and MOST THE TIME, there is an audio drift problem where the audio slowly drifts out of sync from the video... I hope to have some correction for this ASAP..

Best of the best.

Stacy Krahn, Amazon
11 October 2013
  • Summary: This is an outstanding product. For those that will ask, I use this in a dual-core computer, with 2 gigs of ram. I have a 1 gig NVidia video card, and another Hauppauge TV tuner for Local Digital Channels. This unit is hooked up to a Directv receiver (I use Genie).

Many of the Negative Reviews Are for A Different Product or Due to Improper Use. Works Great When Used Properly

Rand782 "Still wallowing where most have forg..., Amazon
10 August 2013
  • Summary: For some reason Amazon is posting reviews for the gaming edition or the 1512 here, which is bound to cause some confusion if you rely heavily on reviewer's advice before purchase, as I do.
