4 out of 5 eggs Hauppauge Rocket DVR 03/01/2014

This review is from: Hauppauge 1540 HD PVR Rocket Portable Game Recorder

Pros: The Hauppauge DVR Rocket is a disappointment. It records X-box flawlessly, but will NOT allow you to copy from streaming media like ROKU, and won’t easily allow me to do the one thing I bought it for—recording a Power Point presentation off-screen of my PC. Setup is confusing. HDMI is not the one-size-fits-all solution to connection.

Cons: This device determines if you should be allowed to record. If in doubt, it says your USB thumb drive is not present, instead of telling you cannot record. Three thumb drives later, and doing a default X-box recording proved that with a 1 GB USB drive connected. X-box was a gorgeous recording in MP4 (H.264) default format. That’s all I could get it to do predictably. Worse, it recorded some screen fiddling on the PC once.

Figuring out what power-up sequence to do is daunting. Load a new disk in the X-box, and you lose your screen unless you boot all the way from scratch with everything. Blinking colored lights do not explain a piece of gear like this. It will not work with HDMI switchers encountering different HDMI restrictions. You might get better results with A/V in, but my computer doesn’t have those anymore.

Other Thoughts: It would be unfair for me to trash the device for anyone using it for Xbox or PS-3 recording. It worked very well in that regard--some of the best screen imaging from my Xbox that I've ever seen. The PC part was misleading. I thought a stand alone device would avoid the software issues of recording, but they carried those problems into the firmware for this unit. Line up all your ducks carefully, or it doesn't work.
