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

Thomas Doyle, Amazon

  • 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: Newegg needs to change the label for this item to HVR-2255 instead of stating it in parenthesis. When I first bought this, Newegg did not state it was an HVR-2255.
  • Pros: * Two capture cards in one card * 10-bit analog resolution
  • Cons: Not HVR-2250, so need the latest drivers and latest WinTV (CD version 3.9). The latest WinTV does not work well with my setup. I have HVR-2250 and HVR-2255. Actual using them has problems. I can not record from four tuners. I can only use one tuner out of four at a time. Previous WinTV version ha...

  • 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.

Warning!

  • Summary: You will need a very strong signal to get this to work. I recently installed an antenna and cut the cable. I wanted to build an HTPC to use as a PVR, so I got this tuner. My antenna works perfectly when connected to either one of my TVs.

Media Center Compatibility?

Michael G., Newegg
28 July 2014
  • Summary: I recently purchased a Tablo from Newegg, I will be reviewing it soon, but my initial take on it, is that it works quite well. It is geared to people who want to use their computer to provide a service, while Hauppauge is for someone who wants to play with their computer.
  • Pros: Physically, the device is nice. Packaging is professionally done. Easy to install.
  • Cons: Disappointing performance. Win7 software is unbelievable. I think there are some compatibility issues here if you are trying to use this device with Windows Media Center (WMC), and I don't think Hauppauge has the desire to fix them. I spoke with both their customer service and their sales departm...

  • Summary: The Hauppauge website driver for WMC HVR-22x0_7_9_1_30192_WHQL.zip is the culprit. My research says the WHQL should indicate a DIGITALLY SIGNED DRIVER........? I have obtained some information on how to defeat Windows' requirement for a digitally signed driver. But should not Hauppauge fix their's?
  • Pros: Newegg is a great online retailer. Newegg is always my first choice for anything computer related. This review is about Hauppauge, not Newegg.
  • Cons: Purchased this card to install in a Windows 7 Pro machine. The drivers on the CD returned "Compatable Hardware Not Found". Windows 7 Pro says the driver from the website is not DIGITAL SIGNED so 7 will not allow it. Trying to obtain help from Hauppauge Tech Support is way past fustrating. Hauppau...
