Your computer is already pretty versatile, handling your webcam, sound, email, online videos and DVDs, and doing traditional computer things like graphics and word processing. What else could a person want? Well, you just might want to watch the news or maybe listen to a little radio. They still exist, you know.

This dual tuner card from Hauppauge lets you watch and record two different TV channels, and it doesn't matter if they're digital or analog. Got enough on your mind, but you are tired of setting your MP3 player on "random"? It's also an FM tuner, so you can receive your favorite FM stations. ATSC, NTSC and ClearQAM (that is, unencrypted QAM) gives you maximum flexibility in your TV viewing without fear of obsolescence. Comes with a remote control and two IR blasters to control set top boxes.

Whether you have to spend a lot of time on your computer or you enjoy spending a lot of time on your computer, this card makes it easier to catch your favorite programs and still get something done. Shop and compare, we'll be waiting right here.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: All the tuners work great in win-tv and Windows media center. I live in orange county ca. and get 158 channels many in high def.

Cons: Remote does not work. I've tried everything short of messing with the registry and I refuse to do that. I may return it because of this. Or just buy another remote. Does not speak very high for my first Hauppage purchase. This is an update, started having problems with the drivers in window 7 tried every thing to fix to no avail hauppage was of no help ---- got so frustrated I broke it. won't by their products again.

Other Thoughts: I noticed from other reviews that this is a common problem. And it seems no easy fix is there, this just shouldn't be a problem in this day and age especially at this price.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent buy and does what it advertises.

Pros: Easy install in my DELL990 Optiplex. The WinTV software it came with is a little clunky at times but it works well. I don't use the Media Center software. Records all of my over air shows and football. It does everything I want it to.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Get a big disk!

1 out of 5 eggsGreat Idea... But...

Pros: None

Cons: The dual tuners do little good as most cable companies digital signal are encrypted.
Tested with 3 different commonly used remotes and only one could be seen by the IR receiver.
Tested on two common Comcast set top boxes and neither would receive signal from the IR blaster.

Other Thoughts: This product may have been a good solution for days gone by (before cable encryption), but without solid compatibility with remotes and set top boxes building a DVR (even capture only - non tuner) with this product is going to be a challenge.

2 out of 5 eggsHauppage tv tuner that never got

Pros: Pretty sure it will work great. Newegg customer service is also great, got all money back from lost package.

Cons: Bought the first one- But due to forwarded address and other etc I hadn't planned on. Never showed up. That Smartpost is a really bad way to ship things. Ship it out to somewhere and never will hear from it again? When it can just be sent to address here and not to Denver!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Flawlessly with Windows 8 Enterprise 64bit

Pros: Painless hardware and software installation. Vendor website offers up-to-date drivers and companion software. No hassle install and operation on Windows 8 Enterprise 64-bit OS. WinTV v7.2 (upgraded to v8) was easy to install/configure and provides a much cleaner interface compared to ArcSoft TotalMedia. WinTV provides a good alternative to Windows Media Center. Plenty hardware accessories are included.

Cons: Minor – Jumping to different channels without remote takes some effort.

Other Thoughts: Needed to replace my diehard DIAMOND TVW650PCIE ATI TV Wonder HD 650 Combo after enabling “Above 4G Decoding (Available if the system supports 64-bit PCI decoding)” on my motherboard. The outdated drivers simply would not function with my other PCIe cards. The image quality, smoothness, and solid software provide a good option for those who cannot use Windows Media Center.

1 out of 5 eggsOut Of Date Hardware

Pros: easy to install. i didn't not buy windows media center i am using the Hauppauge software win7tv. works fine for me.

Cons: i have AT&T U verse so scanning channels didn't work for me. plus i had to use the composite Cable the old Red White and Yellow cable. Had two comp hook up but could only use one. the remote is useless for me. yes the volume works the off buttons the pause, fast forward and rewind, stop buttons work fine. but i have to use my set-top remote to change channels. I should have bought their other Product (Colossus HDTV Tuner model 01414)

Other Thoughts: if you have AT&T Uverse Buy
(Colossus HDTV Tuner model 01414)
Is the same Price Around $ 129.00

5 out of 5 eggsBeyond Amazing

Pros: This device performs amazingly. It turned my computer into a DVR and with the large hard drives around today, this literally means almost limitless content. The remote and chip sync flawlessly with windows media center and allows me to peruse the TV guide from bed. The duel tuners allow me to watch and record at the same time.

Cons: It took some time to get this device working properly. Prepare for this and do not expect plug and play functionality. READ THE INCLUDED INSTRUCTIONS FIRST

Other Thoughts: This product is really amazing. Makes me wish I got more cable channels and that they were broadcast in higher quality at college.

5 out of 5 eggsIt Just Works

Pros: This card has worked from the day I first booted up my build and has not let me down since. I have used it with Windows Media Center as well as XBMC and it was very easy to setup with both programs.

Cons: The ir receiver for the remote is really short.

Other Thoughts: I use this in my dorm in college and would highly recommend it for a similar purpose. It is really nice to have a full tv guide and the ability to dvr shows in a dorm!
