Even though the Hauppauge HD-PVR is a little pricy compared to other capture devices, considering it is the only one that generically catures HD in a consumer based product, it's quite the deal. I used mine with SageTV software (which I highly recommend). Setup was very easy (I highly recommend downloading the latest drivers), and the end result was beautiful captured HD TV from my DISH receiver. It's not perfect, as I've had to occasionally power-cycle my device, but I'd still highly recommend it.

-CJ quote

I was somewhat dubious, as in recent years it had been described to me that this type of product was just not feasible and that I'd be limited to recording S-Video to my PC. This does, however, do a great job with the recording and so far has been trouble free. I use it in conjunction with a SageTV media center PC and I'm about to purchase a second one since it has worked so well. I really prefer the funtionality, quality, and affordability of the SiliconDust HDHR units, but they don't record ALL of the channels I pay for like this unit. The blue light is too damn bright - that's the downside.

Product Overview

What can HD PVR do?
HD PVR can record high definition or regular TV from your satellite or cable receiver onto a PC disk drive in a compressed H.264 format. Once TV programs are recorded, you can play them back onto your PC screen or burn them on a DVD disk for playback on a Blu-ray DVD player.

H.264 format is used by Blu-ray disks and exceeds other compression standards in quality and disk space consumption, providing a crisp image and amazing digital sound. H.264 use 1/3 of disk space compare to the popular MPEG-2 format.

Make your own movie library: Once TV programs are recorded onto the PC, you can play them back on your PC screen or transfer them to a DVD or Blu-ray disk for playback on a Blu-ray DVD player. You can also play them on a Sony PlayStation 3 or a Microsoft Xbox 360.

Use HD PVR with your Set Top Box
Connect your satellite or cable TV receiver box and schedule TV or HDTV recordings. With the IR blaster, HD PVR can turn the set top box on, change the channel and record the selected program. WinTV-Scheduler provides then an easy way to schedule these recordings from your PC. Find your favorite movie, sports event or show, schedule it and let HD PVR take over!
