Non-Windows Users beware

Dave, B&H Photo
3 April 2015
  • 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.
  • Cons: Difficult To Install, Difficult To Use

great product

Tek David Kim, Amazon

  • Summary: This product works great but it was bit difficult to set up. I have comcast box and it was hard to figure out the IR code for it. After extensive google search and trying number of different configuration, it finally worked. Oh and this tv tuner doesn't record in HD.

Decent tuner, but not as good as my cheap tv

Christopher Holliday, Amazon
8 January 2013
  • Summary: I'm not sure if it has to do with signal splitting to feed the dual tuners or what, but this device connected to the same antenna in the same location, has much weaker signal than the integrated TV tuner on my TVs.

Poor tuner reception

B. Kuo, Amazon
27 June 2011
  • Summary: Pros: Easy to install, fits in any modern PC, dual tuners, clean bundle, no cable fees! Cons: Poor reception and no inexpensive way to fix it. Thoughts: I really wanted to like this tuner card. It fits a missing piece perfectly in my HTPC / media PC box for over-the-air HDTV DVR capability.

Media Center remote not that good

W. Powell "consumer unchained", Amazon
28 February 2011
  • Summary: The card works as well or better than my All-in-Wonder cards. I bought this model because it came with an MS Media Center remote. But, I could have easily bought the cheaper Hauppauge, one tuner card and an MS Media Center remote for $20 and saved $50.

Great tuner card

Billsbury, B&H Photo
4 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Card works great with Media Center on a Windows 7 machine! Only problem was there was no installation disk in the package (even though the box indicated there should be). Can download drivers online but if you want to load WinTV, you need the original CD to download the most recent version.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Use, Good Graphics Quality, Reliable Performance
  • Cons: Missing installation CD

  • Excerpt: Application: I use the product in a Windows 7 HTPC, using CPU graphics, i3 processor, and 4GB RAM.Pros: The board design and the auxiliary connector (that takes up another slot) are nice. It was also nice how easily the basic TV tuner setup from within Windows Media Center.

Good tuners

Wayne, Amazon
21 October 2010
  • Summary: The WinTV-HVR-2250 comes with two dual tuners. It allows you to record up to two channels at once, either digital or analog, while concurrently watching either one. The board is easy to install, and allows you to connect a TV antenna/cable, an FM antenna, and an analog A/V source for capture or...
