Pros: If you don't pay close attention to which kind of update you use from the CyberLink site your mistake will make it seem like the software does not work!!!! UPDATE IT FROM CYBERLINK SITE USING THE "BUNDULED WITH HARDWARE LINK" OR YOUR ERROR WILL CAUSE IT NOT TO WORK!! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO UPGRADE TO ANY OTHER VERSION IF YOU PAY ATTENTION TO HOW YOU UPDATE AT THERE SITE!!!!!

Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250(WinTV-HVR-2255) Media Center Kit Dual TV Tuner w/ IR Remote PCI-E x 1

5 out of 5 eggs If you don't have time to for cable but want all the features plus some this card is for you !! 05/12/2012

This review is from: Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250(WinTV-HVR-2255) Media Center Kit Dual TV Tuner w/ IR Remote PCI-E x 1

Pros: Works great with WMC. I go to family diner at my in-laws every Sunday and have missed animation domination for 2 years, until I bought this card. The dual tuner with on card decoding lets you record in the back ground with out and any CPU or GPU slowdown at all!! You can record your show while watching your wife's show with her, with no problems at all. The video capture let me turn all my VHS into DVDs. Not to mention the remote that starts WMC controls the volume and every thing else you expect a remote to do!! I am so happy about this card I can not even begin to give all the pros!!! I can put my HTCP to sleep and the card wakes the system up to record my shows!! I don't have to worry if my PC is on or not to have my programs recorded. It gets more channels then my digital HD 1080p TV tuner does, that impresses me! I have not used this option but you can hook your cable box up to your HTPC through the card as well, and do all the features I described and some more.

Cons: I had to install the WinTV software to use all the features of the card has through WMC. Which after the first restart I uninstalled and was still able to use all of them. Tried this twice just to make sure that that was the issue. If you only install the W7 drivers you can't utilize the card fully. This is easily resolved by installing the cards software then restarting W7 and then uninstalling the program.

Other Thoughts: I love this card, to think I almost stated paying for cable just for the options this card has!!! Like record TV settings; record series, single show, or new shows only. Also pausing live TV for about ten min so you can fast forward through the commercials.

AMD A4-3400 Llano Dual-Core 2.7GHz Socket FM1 65W AD3400OJGXBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 6410D
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This card is perfect for a HTCP build, non gaming of coarse. If your looking to build a HTCP and want to go as cheap as possible with still being able to play HD content and Blu-Rays with out buying an expensive graphics card, this is the way to go!!

Cons: Not for gaming.

Other Thoughts: If you are planning on upgrading by using the dual graphics option, to utilize both the APU and GPU on an add on graphics card together, you should keep in mind that the A4-3400 is only compatible with limited graphics cards that max out at Radeon 6450. If you plan to go above Radeon 6550 skip the APU dual graphics all together. Any thing above that will not be able to use the APU and will solely rely on the add ons GPU.
