2 out of 5 eggs Less than stellar 01/26/2010

This review is from: Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1600 ATSC/ClearQAM/NTSC TV Tuner PCI w/Remote

Pros:

Finds and receives all local over-the-air digital broadcasts (woo-hoo - all 5 of them in my area).

Cons:

Can't find the analog and digital channels that my bargain-basement flat-screen TV can, on my TimeWarner cable. Am running without a cable box, and TV finds 30+ channels. The WinTV-HVR-1600 finds three - all of them useless ones that nobody ever would watch.

The scheduler in WinTV7 doesn't work. When I enter a time/date/channel to record and press the "OK" button, nothing happens: doesn't enter it into the schedule. So, I can record only if I am present at my PC and manually press the "record" button. Kinda useless, eh?

Other Thoughts:

Am running Win7-64.

Sent email to Hauppauge over a week ago regarding the problem with it scanning my cable channels. and got no response.

The CD that comes with the product is useless - don't even put it into your computer. Instead, go to their website and download WinTV7.
