Performance

Rated this tuner slightly above average due to the lack of instructions and poor software. Haven’t been able to get the QAM tuners to work with FIOS but this may not be a fault of the WinTV 2250. Hauppauge on-line support for this card is non-existent, you would think I’m the only person on the planet trying to use the card with FIOS. On the up side the picture is very clear and it seems to work well with Window Media Center. Works well with Vista.

This product does not perform as advertised. It will not let you record one show while watching another. It is installed in an almost new Dell XPS 64 bit system with 8GB of ram. The computer must be restarted after using the media center because it appears there is a conflict that causes the computer to lock up. The computer was not doing that before installation of the tuner and software. This product is a total disappointment and waste of money. Hauppauge's tech support was of no help. Do not buy this tuner.

Great TV Tuner

by www.JoeLevi.com on 1/27/2009

This card is great, it's got enough processing power and memory on-board to take care of receiving and encoding without loading down the CPU, it runs cool and is fairly power efficient, it lets you record two shows at once and only requires one coax-in cable. AWESOME! Can fit in full-height or half-height PCI-express slot (has an included bracket to put it in half-height cases. The recording quality is SUPERB! With my prior TV Tuner I had pixelization of the video and "hiccups" of the audio when recording digital TV, with this one that rarely ever happens. Very happy with this card! Read More
