Consumer Alert

Consumer Alert
Clear QAM digital cable TV channels are not available on all cable networks. For more information, contact your cable TV provider.
Windows Media Center does not currently support clear QAM. To watch clear QAM channels, you should use the Hauppauge WinTV v6 application.
For analog cable TV reception, you need an analog cable TV connection. If you have a digital cable set-top box or a satellite box, the WinTV-HVR-1950 can connect via either Composite or S-Video inputs. Channel changing will be done using the IR Blaster.
For ATSC over-the-air digital TV reception, a high-gain antenna is recommended. To check the ATSC TV broadcasts in your area, go to TitanTV.com and enter your postal code. Note: depending on the strength of your antenna, you might not be able to receive all broadcasts listed at TitanTV.
To use the WinTV-HVR-1950 for TV with the Windows Media Center application, a Media Center certified DVD or MPEG-2 software decoder should be standard in your Media Center PC. If you are building a Media Center PC, check Microsoft’s website for a list of Media Center certified DVD decoders. The Windows Media Center application is included with Windows XP Media Center, Windows Vista Ultimate, and Windows Vista Home Premium editions only. Note: the enclosed remote control is not MCE certified and does not replace the Media Center remote control.
ATSC TV recordings are not 100% compatible with DVD, and therefore you cannot burn them directly to a DVD.
For use with Windows Vista, the WinTV-HVR-1950 is certified for use with Microsoft’s Media Center application. Not all included applications on the enclosed installation CD are currently certified for use with Windows Vista.
