  • Pros: From the time I have had this card in my system it has worked like a charm. Installation was quick and easy both, physically and driver / system wise. Operates great in Windows as well as Linux.
  • Cons: I have nothing to complain about.

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

  • 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.

Great Product

David D., Amazon

  • 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.

  • 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.

Poor

  • Summary: Extremely poor documentation /set-up instructions. Once one stumbles on correct technique(s) for setting up device, it seems to work adequately.

Hundred-dollar paperweight

Julianne Thompson, Amazon
27 July 2013
  • Summary: We bought this in April, and it has stopped working completely (it's July). We had trouble with the various setup instructions to get everything just right so it actually worked with both OTA tv signals and the RCA ports in the front. Getting it to work with WMC took a lot of work.
