Pretty satisfied with this little unit when I was using Vista 32bit. When I switched over to 64 bit, I couldnt find any on the web. The hardware itself is quite good. Picture quality is nice. No real problems other than the whole driver situation.
Bought this when it was on sale and I was missing a bunch of my favorite TV shows. Installed nice and easy, but the included software was just horrible. I bought a copy of BeyondTV online and it works WAY better.
Exceeded my expectations, I dont think you could beat the advantages of this card for the price. Used this card for a home built security camera system, works very well. Connected to a 3 camera system to record video to an external harddrive.
Easy to install, and fast, within a few minutes I had it up and running in my desktop computer.
Bought this to record tv shows as I work nights and always seem to miss the few shows I actually do watch regularly. With this and a large hard drive you can record quite a few shows without worrying about running out of room before you either erase or burn the shows to DVDs. I lucked out as I bought this before the dollar plunged, so saved myself even more money.
Only problem is that it does take some playing with to get it to the way you like it and I am not sure if it is my dated PC that causes the program to freeze when flipping through channels or if that is an inherent flaw of the card.
This does exactly what it is supposed to do. I now have cable on my media pc. It wasn't the greatest thing to set up. After some reading online, I'm appalled at the lack of 64 bit support Hauppauge has for its products. I planned on buying another for my main rig, but due to its 64 bit incompatibility I'll look elsewhere. I just don't trust these guys to release and maintain a set of drivers for a new or old product.
I got this to build a linux MythTV box. It works really well, once you get it working. This is one of the best supported video capture cards for linux but it can still be a struggle to get it going. I found I had to compile the ivtv drivers from source, I never did get the ivtv package available for my distribution working 100%.
Card itself is good, captured recordings are very good, you can't tell a difference between recording and live TV, when using TV-Out. The biggest disappointment was fact that it's not possible to play DivX through TV output, at least according to Hauppauge tech support.
And you will need third-party software to fully utilize the card (like GBPVR). Supplied bundle is not worth much.
