Hauppauge WInTV-PVR USB2

ViolentShampoo, REVIEW STREAM
8 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Origanly I was planning on buying a Tivo. Unfortunately I was not able to because Tivo was not available in Canada at the time. Another factor was that I could not justify the monthly Tivo fee so I bought the Hauppauge WInTV-PVR USB2 as an alternative.

"Took initial tweaking, but ended up working quite well with SageTV"

zeeb8, CNET
12 September 2005
  • Pros: -Have no issues recording programs, basically have Tivo on my home PC
  • Cons: -The software that came with it is clunky and was difficult to use. Sage TV was must better. Also, wished it still came with a remote with an electric signal rather than infared.

"Great Product BUT some dislikes"

jimthome411, CNET

  • Pros: OK picture quality, awesome software for Tivo-style recording, great live pause function, just discovered it has a screen snapshot function, good remote
  • Cons: The main reason i bought this product was to play Xbox on my laptop, but to my dismay......the lag between the time I press a button on the controller and the time it does the move is too long!!!
