Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1600 1101WB PCI Interface 07/14/2009
This review is from: Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1600 ATSC/ClearQAM/NTSC TV Tuner White Box 1101 PCI Interface
Easily installed. Decent picture with live view and with recordings. The WinTV software is adequate. Very low cpu and memory load. Having an FM tuner on my computer is awesome!
Colors are sometimes off for a few seconds when first initializing WinTV - when connected to a Dish Network 322. Sometimes, switching focus to a heavy load program can cause the 1600 to drop frames or lose audio sync. The install disc did not come with WinTV Radio or WinTV Scheduler. Though the tv viewing window is scalable, the WinTV gui seems not to be.
I would recommend this device for the price. But, bypass the install cd for the website. I am using this device as a video capture card (mainly with a Dish Network 322), and so have not thoroughly tested the NTSC, and ATSC/QAM tuners. This device utilizes a 1-2 second delay that can be shut off via a registry setting. I haven't tried this yet. It's working very well on an ASUS M3N78 PRO AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 8300 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail with windows XP SP3 installed.
