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...
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 ...

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.
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..
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.
