I had to update to the most current kernel in Linux (Fedora 14) but after that anything worked. Not low cost, Had to use a Windows laptop to upload the firmware the 1st time.

HD Recording Full of bugs, False advertisement on portion of the company. This device DOES NOT Support ANALOG VIDEO even although it is advertised as such. Poor software program that doesn't recognize the recoder half of the times. have to unplug the boc 90% of the time. called buyer service and stated there was practically nothing they could do. Do not acquire this product. Buyer Sevice stated that I had to obtain an additional one particular of their items, basically, As well Negative. They told me that they are working on a fix beacuase analog sources are also buggy, from what I just study, they've been functioning on a repair for the last three years, which suggests they are not going to solve the issue period.

Great resolution for the price tag. Setup was straightforward. I haven't had any technical problems. The computer software, however, is simplistic, but does the basic job as advertised. My objective is to record a library of educational applications from the History channel, Science channel, Discovery channel, and so on. for later viewing and that I can also convert for operating on my ipod Touch. All this has worked nicely. None so far

Decent high quality, simple to use. No live streaming on Computer (it doesn't show up as a valid video source). Came defective 鼐p output on my Tv was horrible, but recording quality was good.. meaning defect on the output of the HD PVR). The assistance group for the organization is horrible. Take weeks (yes, weeks) to respond to your support emails. When you call, count on to be on hold for 20 minutes then talk to a man who sounds like he doesn't want to be at function. Decent product, decent price tag. Horrible help from Hauppauge. If you do have troubles, NewEgg will replace it for you inside 30 days I believe.. They have excellent support. If you want very clear HD excellent, get the Black Magic Intensity Pro. This good quality is DECENT at very best.. Extremely blurry playing MW2 on the recording.

Records HD content at 720p using Composite. No HDMI result in that would be worthless if the factor you're attempting to dub is HDCP protected. I use this point to record college football games and archive them. I don't use the incorporated application. Only the drivers but I do my recording in SageTV. Have also had good results with Windows Media Center, but I choose SageTV. Sometimes you have to reboot it. I'm talking maybe when or twice a month it will shed signal. Turn it off, back on once again and it's fine. In no way happened even though recording and it could have been an situation with my Dish DVR instead causing the challenge. This point is the best. I record my games, use VideoReDo to take away the commercials, then enjoy my vast library of college football. ahhhh!

I purchased this unit due to the fact I had my cable corporation’s HD DVR loaded with HD Television shows I didn't want to drop. The unit performs as advertised. I've had a couple of issues with the supplied computer software locking up but in common this is an outstanding device mainly because the output can quickly be converted and edited. I use CyberLink PowerDirector to edit out commercials simply because it permits me to edit the video without trans-coding. If you keep almost everything uncomplicated and don't do chapter transitions effects you can burn a 2 hour HD Video on a dual layer DVD in about 10 minutes and enjoy your own personal library of recorded HD video. I want they had a wireless device so I could stream the video. I use a laptop to capture my video since my workstation it far from the cable box.

Integrates properly the Windows 7 media center assuming install the media center computer software from Hauppauge. It's great to record HD content material with no monthly fees! None so far. I noticed it occasionally skipping during playback, but I believe the comp. vid. signal from my directv box was momentarily dropping out as a outcome of altering inputs on the Tv throughout the recording. NOT the fault of the HD PVR.I used Graphedit to up the bitrate to13.5Mbs. I feel it improved the picture excellent when recording HD content.

I have had the greatest luck with application version 1053. No lockups for a few months with my DTV H21. The newer version software program was a lot more prone to lockups. The unit will lock if you have a poor signal or a garbage image. Lock your box to 1080i if you can. Well worth the money for HD recording.

This point is ideal for any of your recording needs. It has a fantastic user interface to use with Windows to make recording your videos a breeze. My laptop supports the three output kinds that it makes use of, and I use a video converter to save some challenging drive space by shrinking the video file size: just minimize the resolution and video bitrate. No HDMI input - that's the only con, but I can not tell a distinction among HDMI and YPbPr inputs. Personally, I do all of my recording on my laptop and then transfer the files to an external really hard drive. If you want to use a desktop for this then either you need to have a extended USB cable, or the device that you are recording from needs to be close to your Pc.If you require to record in yet another area, you basically need to have a lengthy USB cable. I did not locate out this till I bought the product, so I hope this aids someone.

Pixel excellent good quality and in some circumstances even far better than the original source.Uncomplicated to use.Simple to set up.Good form issue. It doesn't do 1080p, use HDMI or have many inputs. This is my initially video capturing device a person recommended to me and it does everything I want it to.

Extremely Reasonably pricedStraightforward To Install The stock element cables Please think about upgrading the component cables that come stock with the 1212. I propose Acoustic Investigation Es91 Element Video Cable which you can get for a mere ผ.99 at Video Only and other retailers.Or, look for component cables that are 24K Gold-Plated, with RCA Connectors and Oxygen-Free copper wire. Any audio synch problems that I have had are directly attributable to my blu-ray player (s).

Can record from Stb DVR so no need to schedule when to record video. Capacity to record MP-four files to rewriteable DVD's up to 110 minutes at 5mb/s on a four.7gb DVD and play back on windows media player. Hangs up when capturing video in 480p use 480 i rather mainly because 480p is 60fps and 480i is 30fps

Performs wonderful for capturing HD video with Linux and MythTV. I'm making use of it to capture video from my Cable box, and the video excellent is outstanding. None This is pretty much the only option for capturing HD video on MythTV from a Cable or Satellite service (since the component video outputs are unprotected). If you're going to use this device with MythTV, be prepared to do some customization. For instance, I had to write my own channel changing script, simply because the ones I found on the internet had been not working rather right for my setup. But that is not especially the HD-PVR's fault, so not a "Con" for the purposes of this overview. :)

This device captures awesomely on cable boxes and any device with element HD or SD composite / S Video. This box also can cap stareo or five.1 by way of optical passthrough. This box has awesome hardware encoding even if it transfers over USB two.. It also has linux myth support which I haven't attempted however but it is mentioned to work. The only con I have identified is it's limited application assistance for capturing in Windows. I can only cap with the included application it ships with in Windows. There are Mac and Linux capture apps, but this is only minor since you cap and then edit in a different app. I also recommend capturing in MPEG2 TS or M2TS not MP4 since of editing stated files.

I use this mostly to record video from my XBox and it works perfectly for that. I've no require to set recording instances, use the remote, or something else so this performs completely.Glad they added mp4 as an encoding alternative because my last time acquiring this.Ordered this on Monday, got it Wednesday the similar week, wonderful shipping. No HDMI and recording settings are sparse, but more than all it works.Utilizing the incorrect energy cord imply immediate destruction of the device. Kinda wierd since I've had other devices with swapped energy cords function fine.Only comes with 1ft component cables now, when I bought my very first a single it came with 6ft cables. For the price tag, are even 3ft cables to considerably to ask for, truly? Do make confident you use ONLY the included power provide, my last 1 went up in smoke, literally, due to the fact I occurred to plug in the incorrect power cord. User is at fault, no blame to Hauppauge on that.

Fantastic excellent recordings. Appears incredibly stable, I got revision D2. Computer software is rather weak. Truly needs to support W7 Media Center out of the box (come on Hauppauge about a driver???) Employing with DVBLink for HDPVR plugin 30 day trial to enable setup in W7 Media Center along with firestb for channel changing of STB (TW box) via firewire. So far very impressed with the benefits. After setup, it is seemless as any other tuner in W7MC.

Flexible/portable simply because your capable to effortlessly move it about from 1 pc to one more. Excellent for capturing console games in HD. This device is fantastic. Because I am working with it strictly for capturing console games, i have to pause and un-pause recordings involving matches (street fighter 4) occasionally, if the time among pausing and unpausing is significantly less than a minute or so the device stops responding and the only way to get it to function once again is to unplug it and plug it back in again. my work around is to just not hit pause when recording short 2 min matches. but then i have to split the video afterwards, not a huge deal. i sorta wish it also had hdmi ports, but i know that would make it far more costly.

Properly ive heard all the horror stories of the PVR on various internet websites. I went ahead and bought this anyways, even though i bought it from the actual web site to guarantee i got the e1 revision. With that getting mentioned, the device has worked flawlessly so far. The Arcsoft media center has not giving me any troubles as of but. Records in 720񳀨른. Stunning image excellent and not any high quality loss actually. Comes with component cables, although i propose you upgrade from the factory as they are very cheap. Sony Vegas has no issues operating with the m2ts files and make for extremely swift editing. No Audio out a sync concern (though this is typically a pc functionality dilemma). Quite a few that ive study are men and women that have bought from sites like @m@zon and Newegg. I highly propose you obtain from Happauge internet site. It will price far more, but you are not going to get an older model exactly where heat would kill this point in a matter of days. So far cons are the device feels affordable and light (if you look at that a con), cables are significantly less than perfect, the device need to be on when utilizing your 360, ps3, cable tv, ect what ever you have hooked up to it. Even though the e1 revision appears to be the a single that eliminates all previous heating difficulties with the PVR, ill re critique in 6 months to make sure. Absolutely nothing seriously major that i would count as a key drawback. For the persons who hold having issues with Arcsoft, try employing other software. Also if you have a three-5 year old Computer, you have no business editing HD to commence with. Most of the people that i have talked to who have problems are folks who are working with this with a laptop, or a Pc with extremely limited functionality. I suggest at least 4GB of ram, dual core or much better. VRAM is not genuinely an challenge as 128 on board will get the job performed fairly nicely. Incredibly Content so far.for a quality test go to my youtube. just search spurs2k6 (username)and appear for recent videos.

- Records from cable boxes like higher def "cable channels" as well as other "component" sources such as Xbox.- Permits scheduled recording- Records into H264 format and thus can burn AVCHD disks using the bundle software program without transcoding - Quick- The recording and burning softwares that come with this product apparently use GPU acceleration to offload CPU. As a outcome, my Athlon II dual core CPU is fantastic adequate for smooth playback and editting (for cutting out commercials). None!! Early days of this product were not as well excellent. Some applied to complain about the unit overheating and disappearing from Device Manager. But this has never happened to me in the previous year.

decent functionality, when it operates In common, I like Hauppauge products, but their driver arrangement is horrible. The quantity of distinct drivers important to get this thing going in Media Center is crazy. And then just when it seemed like it was working, soon after about 12 hours of messing with it, I added a second tuner and then this one stopped operating. Hey Hauppauge, how about just one install and then the darn thing works?

Records HD signal. I had to return this unit. There is a lag of among 10 to 15 seconds just before the unit begins recording. The new 1212 units ought to use driver version 1.57, the older units use driver version 1.56. The new units can\'t use driver 1.56 and there is the difficulty mainly because the newer 1.57 driver is what causes the lag. I own an older unit with the 1.56 driver that has only a one second lag. This is a challenge if you have a recording with no lead time. You will shed the 1st portion of your system due to the fact you want about 15 seconds just before the recording starts. This is unacceptable to me. What is worse is that the tech help persons at Hauppauge does not seem really concerned about this situation. They acknowledge that there is a dilemma, but present no support.

If you have the dollars obtain a copy of Studio 14 you won't regret it!
