This is the best tuner available
25 June 2015
Summary: I've had this tuner for 3 years now in my Win7 AMD 3.3GHz 6 core with 8 Gigs ram and it records 2 channels in 1080p while I'm streaming YouTube videos with no problems at all. And it's actually 4 tuners, 2 analog and 2 digital. I used to use ATI TV tuners, but this is as good as ATI.
Excerpt: Works great with Windows 8.1 Media Center. No problems. I verified that I met all the requirements on the Hauppauge web site. Remote control is great to skip commercials and navigate. I plan on connecting my desktop to my TV for additional replay and watch benefits.
Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Use, Excellent Graphics
Excerpt: We use this with Windows Media Center (WMC) to record Over The Air (antenna) TV programs. Relative to reception, the tuner appears to be at least as good or better than the best TV we have. We have a single coax lead going into the card feeding the dual tuners in the card.
Pros: 2 Tuners, Easy To Install, Reliable Performance
Summary: The only thing I did not expect is the resolution is only 720p not 1080i. The Tuners work great I hooked it up to my homemade antenna and the tuners pick up 27 channels!! I use Bigasoft WTV converter to shrink my files then I use Boilsoft Spliter and Joiner to remove the ads, then store the episode...
Excerpt: Great performance. Easy to setup and works like a dream. I use it mostly for recording digital TV over the air. I connected HDMI from motherboard to TV. Great resolution. Computer sleeps and wakes when time for a recording. TV schedule is very easy to use and program, just click.
Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Use, Good Graphics Quality, Great Graphics Quality, Reliable Performance
Cons: Mouse Is Better Than Remo, Remote Does Not Work
Excerpt: Many home theater media centers are built on platforms other than Windows. This is a new card and the drivers have not been released for Linux. After much difficulty I was able to procure a beta driver and after more difficulty I was able to get it to (mostly) work.
Super easy set up; I was recording HD OTA TV in no time

Summary: After reading the reviews, I was hoping for the best but prepared for a headache when I ordered this. I already had an old PC connected to a TV through a receiver, but I wanted to have a TV tuner and the ability to record local channels in HD in anticipation of cutting the cord and the new...
Excerpt: This product works great with WMC and is everything it claims to do. Only drawback was the driver for the remote to work with WMC was not on the CD as directions listed. I had to down load from the Hauppauge site, otherwise would have been five stars, love it.
