WORKS GREAT

Dude from California, B&H Photo
5 November 2015
  • Excerpt: I use it to copy VHS tapes does a great job, I also use it as a way to watch from my Fios TV Set top box though there is a delay it allows me to watch DVR recordings on the PC which has a better sound since I am hard of hearing, stand definition picture (NO HD) Easy set up not the best quality but...
  • Pros: Durable construction, Highly Compatible, Reliable, Strong Connection Points

Best Quality VHS captures

Kenneth C Brown, Amazon
27 May 2015
  • Summary: This works so much better for VHS tape video captures then some of the others. Tried Roxio and returned it the next day, the Roxio captured signal had worse quality than the VHS tape and honestly, looked like c%#p.

This is such a great item to have if you are a cord cutter ...

A. White "Writer/Philosopher", Amazon
10 March 2015
  • Summary: This is such a great item to have if you are a cord cutter and want to go totally ota. I used it on our laptop, and now Windows Media Center is our Tivvo. I will probably purchase another one in the future for the other computer that does not have a tuner.

nice features and picture

Avi Z, Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: The only tuner/HVR that offers a scalable picture, so I can put the video frame in the corner of my monitor while I work or do other things. I guess it plays HDTV off the air, but it does not have HDMI inputs, so the feed from my cable is either Composite or S-Video, thus no HD..

Great Product

David D., Amazon
29 October 2014
  • Summary: My use for this product was to simply have a way to watch TV at my desk while my children hogged the actual TV in the same room. It has been outstanding for this purpose. I have Cable, which connects directly to the TV through Coax Cable without the use of a cable box.

Beware, model shipped is an HVR-1955. As of 7/28/2014 there are no Linux drivers available yet.

Brian Hankins, Amazon
28 July 2014
  • Summary: Beware, model shipped is an HVR-1955. As of 7/28/2014 there are no Linux drivers available yet. This updated version of the 1950 was released recently this year. I would love to give this a 5 star rating, but as I hoped to get a 1950 to run with mythtv I was pretty disappointed.
