Watch hi-definition ATSC digital TV and clear QAM digital TV on your PC! Analog cable TV, too!

WinTV-HVR-1600 has these great features

Digital Clear QAM features

Digital ATSC HD TV features

Analog TV features

For Analog 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-1600 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 and enter your postal code.

Note: depending on the strength of your antenna, you might not be able to receive all broadcasts list at TitanTV.

To use the WinTV-HVR-1600 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 web site 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 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 Vista, the WinTV-HVR-1600 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 Vista.

4 out of 5 eggsWon't give up

Pros: Solid TV card that won't give up, even after 5 years of hard use.

Cons: Windows software was (is?) terrible in 2007. Slow to change channels. better options now (in 2013).

Other Thoughts: I purchased this card around 2007 to get some free OTA TV. Initially I used it in an XP machine, and was disappointed by the user interface. The recording scheduler wasn't terrible, but watching live TV was ugly and playback of recordings was much better though any other program (I used VLC). Eventually I switched this card into a dedicated HTPC running mythbuntu, where it has been working continuously for ~4 years. Live TV is still more buggy than running a preset recording, but card crashes are on the order of once or twice a year, recording ~10 shows/week. I used analog and digital initially, but have only used digital for the last few years. The remote can be made to work with Linux, and is pretty nice for a bundled HTPC remote.

2 out of 5 eggsNo radio Tuner

Pros: easy to install, drivers only on the disk it comes with

Cons: Wintv is not included with this product but it is supported. it does not have a Radio tuner on it Hauppauge said the only ones of that model that have a radio tuner have 3 f- connectors.

Other Thoughts: this gets a 2 due to misleading discription. if you dont need the radio tuner, its a good card. if you are not useing WMC and plan on using WinTV make sure you have a disk of WinTV before you buy this or it will cost you $10 from hauppauge.
