Your computer is already pretty versatile, handling your webcam, sound, email, online videos and DVDs, and doing traditional computer things like graphics and word processing. What else could a person want? Well, you just might want to watch the news or maybe listen to a little radio. They still exist, you know.

Pros: All the tuners work great in win-tv and Windows media center. I live in orange county ca. and get 158 channels many in high def.

Cons: Remote does not work. I've tried everything short of messing with the registry and I refuse to do that. I may return it because of this. Or just buy another remote. Does not speak very high for my first Hauppage purchase. This is an update, started having problems with the drivers in window 7 tried every thing to fix to no avail hauppage was of no help ---- got so frustrated I broke it. won't by their products again.

Overall Review: I noticed from other reviews that this is a common problem. And it seems no easy fix is there, this just shouldn't be a problem in this day and age especially at this price.

Excellent buy and does what it advertises. 2/29/2016 5:46:15 PM

Pros: Easy install in my DELL990 Optiplex. The WinTV software it came with is a little clunky at times but it works well. I don't use the Media Center software. Records all of my over air shows and football. It does everything I want it to.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: Get a big disk!

Great Idea... But... 2/16/2016 5:51:50 AM

Pros: None

Cons: The dual tuners do little good as most cable companies digital signal are encrypted.
Tested with 3 different commonly used remotes and only one could be seen by the IR receiver.
Tested on two common Comcast set top boxes and neither would receive signal from the IR blaster.

Overall Review: This product may have been a good solution for days gone by (before cable encryption), but without solid compatibility with remotes and set top boxes building a DVR (even capture only - non tuner) with this product is going to be a challenge.

Hauppage tv tuner that never got 11/27/2015 9:19:40 PM

Pros: Pretty sure it will work great. Newegg customer service is also great, got all money back from lost package.

Cons: Bought the first one- But due to forwarded address and other etc I hadn't planned on. Never showed up. That Smartpost is a really bad way to ship things. Ship it out to somewhere and never will hear from it again? When it can just be sent to address here and not to Denver!

Works Flawlessly with Windows 8 Enterprise 64bit 7/17/2015 4:25:12 PM

Pros: Painless hardware and software installation. Vendor website offers up-to-date drivers and companion software. No hassle install and operation on Windows 8 Enterprise 64-bit OS. WinTV v7.2 (upgraded to v8) was easy to install/configure and provides a much cleaner interface compared to ArcSoft TotalMedia. WinTV provides a good alternative to Windows Media Center. Plenty hardware accessories are included.

Cons: Minor – Jumping to different channels without remote takes some effort.

Overall Review: Needed to replace my diehard DIAMOND TVW650PCIE ATI TV Wonder HD 650 Combo after enabling “Above 4G Decoding (Available if the system supports 64-bit PCI decoding)” on my motherboard. The outdated drivers simply would not function with my other PCIe cards. The image quality, smoothness, and solid software provide a good option for those who cannot use Windows Media Center.

Out Of Date Hardware 1/12/2015 11:02:20 PM

Pros: easy to install. i didn't not buy windows media center i am using the Hauppauge software win7tv. works fine for me.

Cons: i have AT&T U verse so scanning channels didn't work for me. plus i had to use the composite Cable the old Red White and Yellow cable. Had two comp hook up but could only use one. the remote is useless for me. yes the volume works the off buttons the pause, fast forward and rewind, stop buttons work fine. but i have to use my set-top remote to change channels. I should have bought their other Product (Colossus HDTV Tuner model 01414)

Overall Review: if you have AT&T Uverse Buy
(Colossus HDTV Tuner model 01414)
Is the same Price Around $ 129.00
