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.

Excellent card with no critical flaws

VARO, B&H Photo
6 May 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought this card mainly to watch TV and record in my PC. The signal reception is very good, both digital and analog, although is rather slow to tune a channel. The bundled software works well, although Hauppauge could make some improvements. The record capabilities of this card are great, and the resulting capture are easily editable to record it in a DVD later or convert it into another format.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Use

Good card

Otto K. Boothe, Amazon

  • Summary: This was a replacement for an earlier model Hauppauge card that died. It works as advertised. It integrates with Windows media center in Windows 7. To use it in Windows XP, it is necessary to buy a disc from Hauppauge with software. This was not necessary with earlier model cards.

Excellent TV Tuner A++++

Duane, B&H Photo
5 March 2013
  • Excerpt: The only reason I would give this 4 stars out of 5 is because the instructions on how to connect this to a TV are not included. The setup on the PC are pretty straight forward however, there is very little info on the output connections. I had to purchase more connectors in order to hook the PC up to my TV but once I had all of the right cables, it looks and works great.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Use, Good Graphics Quality

Two Tuners Necessary and this is the second HVR-2250 I have purchased.

W. Powell "consumer unchained", Amazon
21 January 2013
  • Summary: I use an antenna in the Seattle area and I record and watch at the same time. Even without cable, there are frequently conflicts that would require me to either choose whether I want record or watch but not both. I strongly recommend two tuners to avoid the conflict problem. In general, reception on PCI TV tuner cards is not as good as the tuner in a TV but I am still recording without drops more TV than I can watch.

Two tuners is the way to go.

Matt, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: The WinTV-HVR-2250 PCI Express tuner has been great. I had little difficulty installing it in my Windows7 PC. Being able to watch on channel and record on another is great (for that matter, record two chanels at once.) The remote could have a few more features for Windows Media Center, but that so far is my only complaint.
  • Pros: 2 Tuners, Easy To Install, Easy To Use, Good Graphics Quality, Reliable Performance
  • Cons: Simplified Remote
