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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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..
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).
