This review is from: Hauppauge 1229 WinTV-HVR-2255 Dual TV Tuner / Encoder
been using tuners since 1999. before this one, i used a signal amplifier with my system. i had heard everyone drooling over how amazing this thing tuned analog. after hooking it up, i couldn't figure what all the fuss was about. it still had a little interference and stuff. turns out, when i removed the amplifier the signal was crystal clear. and let me add the signal is split at least once before it hits the tuner. this thing is amazing. i've heard people have issues with it. but it is by far the best tuner i've ever owned.
i've spent thousands at newegg over the years. and this is the first review i've ever written. this product is that good. one con that is being able to pick up encrypted QAM. but you know as well as i do that's neither newegg or hauppauge's fault.
e6400, 4gb ram, and the 750gb samsung this records to are all more than adequate. i honestly can't think of one flaw and no i don't work for hauppauge.
