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. That said, if you use Windows Media Center, this device is exceptional.

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. The biggest downside is that we quickly realized it would need to be unplugged and plugged back in (to reset) every time the computer was turned off or rebooted.

Works good for digital tv

J. L. McNair., Amazon
19 April 2013
  • Summary: I enjoy the digital tuner so I can a view my favorite channels. I am not pleased with the WIN7 TV software, it has less flexibility compared to earlier version, I like to be able to record in Mpeg 1 format (VCD) to reduce storage space. The software do not allow changing encoding formats. The hardware does work well with windows 7 MCE.
