If you're looking to build an HD-DVR with MythTV this is one of the easiest way to give yourself HD capabilities. The Hauppauge 2650 is essentially a down sized HD Homerun Prime which hosts 3 tv tuners, and cost $100 more, while the Hauppauge has 2 tuners. I find two tuners quite adequate. Watch a show while recording another, a dandy thing to do. This tuner accepts a "cablecard" which the cable system will rent to you for typically $4/mo. Give them back their box and save a tad. I bought from another on-line retailer, but the Buy.com price beats it. Read More

Product Overview

The Hauppauge WinTV-DCR-2650 is a dual tuner CableCARD receiver for Your Windows 7 PC. Watch and record basic and premium cable TV on your PC at the same time: The WinTV-DCR-2650 has two tuners so you can watch one cable TV program while recording another. Or record two programs at the same time. It's simple to install via USB, and works with Windows 7 Media Center with the free Electronic Program Guide. This CableCARD receiver works with all U.S. cable operators such as Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cox Cable, Cablevision, Fios, and Uverse.

How Does WinTV-DCR-2650 Work
WinTV-DCR-2650 is just like a cable TV set top box (a "DVR" box) in that it can be used to watch and record TV from digital cable, with some minor differences. The key difference is that a Windows 7 PC with Media Center is required to use the WinTV-DCR-2650, because it works directly with your PC to choose shows in the Program Guide, and to store recorded TV programs. Using your PC for storage gives you an advantage over standard DVR boxes, because if you fill up your hard drive with TV programs, you can easily add a new internal or external hard drive to your PC as needed for virtually unlimited storage of your favorite cable shows.

Plus, there is no monthly fee for the WinTV-DCR-2650. Once you buy it, it's yours to use forever. But you still need to sign up for cable TV service, and you will still need to rent a digital cable card from your local cable operator.

Watch and Record Premium Cable TV Channels Such As HBO and Showtime
All of your cable TV channels, including premium cable channels such as HBO and Showtime, can be watched and recorded with the WinTV-HVR-2650 and Windows Media Center. (Subscriptions to premium channels are required to watch and record those channels.)

Pay-Per-View and video on demand will not be available through the WinTV-DCR-2605, however, since it requires a two way communication to your cable operator.

Test Your Windows 7 PC for Compatibility with Digital Cable Advisor
It's easy to test your PC to ensure it has the correct resources to run the CableCARD receiver. Use Windows Media Center's built-in Digital Cable Advisor for a quick, simple wizard to make sure your Windows 7 PC will work optimally with the WinTV-DCR-2650.

Easy to Install via a USB Connector
The WinTV-DCR-2650 works with most Windows 7 systems with USB ports, including desktop and notebook PCs. It connects to your cable TV directly--no set top box required. You can control your CableCARD, including navigating, watching, and recording shows, using a standard Windows Media Center remote control (not included).
