Great Product for the Price

on 10/21/2006

I've had this product for a couple of months now and it's working great. I'm running on Windows XP (not MCE) Pentium III 1 ghz processor with 512 meg of memory, so I had to go to Hauppauge's site and download the correct drivers. Reception is great, software is ok for bundled software. They have a simple video editing tool that is nice to use to edit out those darn commerials.

Awesome video card for MythTV, Low-profile bracket

by sidevinder on 4/9/2007

I had seen some descriptions of the Hauppauge WINTV-PVR 150 MCE Low Profile shipping with both the low-profile mounting bracket (for the low profile HTPC cases) and normal-profile mounting brackets. This one comes with the low-profile bracket only and it is permanentaly attched with a large solder joint. The top of the bracket may be carefully bent to mount in normal-height PCI slot (but it cannot be secured very well this way). This card takes up hardly any room and shipped with an FM antenna (wire), windows MCE driver CD, and an S-video to video composite (RCA jack) adapter. It is installed and running great in a x86_64 Fedora Core 6 Linux system running mythTV-0.20. Picture quality is superb, performance is excellent, and it runs without creating too much heat(around 35°C).
