Nice tuner

  • Excerpt: Would like to see the remote mimic the tivo remote more closely. Also make it a learning style to help make it more customized. Tuner works great with Windows Media Center.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Use, Good Graphics Quality, Reliable Performance

Great Tuner but has sleep problems

  • Excerpt: Bought this tuner earlier this year and it works fine. The dual tuner capability allows two shows to be recorded at one time. I am using it mainly on a windows 7 with Windows Media Center system with an Intel I5 processor that I made specifically as an HTPC. Recently I added dual boot with Ubuntu and with a little effort got it to work with mythTV also. The manufacturer and B&H were helpful with simple installation issues.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable Performance

  • Summary: I was looking for this card anyway, and Walmart had a good price and free shipping. The only way to make the card better would be for Hauppauge to step up and make the small investment to deliver quality Linux drivers.

Good product with some work to be the best

BERNIE, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: Installation of the card was simple, but the software did not recognize the card at first. The problem turned out to be with one of my two PCIe x1 slots. Then it worked fine. I get 31 channels which was expected without a set-top box. Image quality is great! The DVR function is fantastic with recording off of 2 channels! I have not been able to make the radio turner work yet. Nothing in the software appears to deal with radio reception.

  • Summary: It would have received 5 stars all around if it wasn't for the IR Remote control interface working intermittently at best with Windows 8 Media Center. The picture quality is excellent with over the air digital broadcast.
