5 out of 5 eggs Great hardware, great capture box 04/13/2011

This review is from: Hauppauge HD PVR High Definition Personal Video Recorder USB Port

Pros: I've been using an HD-PVR for HD video capture for several years. Video quality is outstanding at 720p or 1080i, and the box itself is bulletproof (I have the "C2" version; I understand the first release boxes tended to overheat, but I've never had that problem). A great way to archive video from any HD source with component outs.

Cons: The Windows software included with the box is pretty lousy, and Hauppauge's software support is limited. Box doesn't recognize DTS audio. No way to crop video (i.e. remove letterbox black areas) without additional software and re-encoding. Mac support (software) costs extra, from outside vendors.

Other Thoughts: Hauppauge doesn't offer Mac support out of the box; OS X users have to buy either ElGato's eyeTV or Steven Toth's HDPVRCapture software (Google for it). For my money, the much cheaper HDPVRCapture is preferred, with a straightforward interface and easy. no-reencoding export to .mp4 files that can be edited with MPEG Streamclip freeware and then played back via Quicktime + Perian. I don't use my HD-PVR for actual scheduled PVR recordings, just video capture, so I have no opinion on that performance. Works great with a C2D Intel Mac Mini for both recording and playback.
