Uncertified Windows Drivers makes this product unusable with Windows 7 ...

Thomas Doyle, Amazon
4 March 2015
  • Summary: Uncertified Windows Drivers makes this product unusable with Windows 7 64 bit computers. The only work around is to press the F8 Key during reboot and select the bypass driver certification option. You must do this each time you boot up or it will not work.

  • Summary: I ordered Hauppauge's lastest model HVR-2255 and received the HVR-2250. Thought it must have been a simple shipping error so I reordered and again received the old model HVR-2250. Not Happy. Now I have 2 packages to return.

Does not work with Windows 8.1 and only one TV tuner input. The other is FM input.

Shao-Min Juan, Amazon
15 November 2013
  • Summary: The card I received does not work with my new Dell Windows 8.1 machine. Every time I try to scan the channels the machine would drop dead (not even blue screen) and reboot.

  • Excerpt: I got my first one of these 3 weeks ago, followed installation directions and crashed my computer every time I tried to install the drivers. Tech support finally advised me that I had a defective unit and to return it for replacement.

Disappointed

David, B&H Photo
23 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I ordered this White Box version not realizing that Windows 8 standard does not include a Media Center.

ATSC Sensitivity is terrible

Sharan, Amazon
28 May 2012
  • Summary: My system: Win 7, AMD Fusion CPU, 4 gigs ram This card's tuner is terrible at reading ATSC signals that are considered weak or mid range in signal strength. When plugging a pre-amped ATSC antenna cable directly into the TV I'm able to get about 20 channels perfectly.

  • Summary: Very simple to install and love the dual tuner option. If only it had picked up all my local channels. I received every channel in my local area except which were both VHF channels.
