      Comments about Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1250 PCI Express TV Tuner for Windows:

      Installed on a new Windows 7 AMD 8 core computer with WIN7 Ultimate and it works well with Windows Media Center. Clarity and quality image is much better than the old ATI TV card it replaced. The only thing I miss is the easy volume change/muting using only the mouse scroll wheel with the old ATI tuner card. It's not a big deal though. Overall, this Hauppauge is a great card.

          short card exposes more of graphics adapter heat sink for cooler operation especially under HD video & gaming load loads.

                This card was automatically recognized by Ubuntu 11.04 and the correct driver was loaded. I've just started setting an application to view TV with it. The natural choice would be Mythtv but it'd difficult to set up and I want is viewing, not recording so I decided to try Me-TV. The trick to setup was to find a configuration file with all the QAM256 frequencies used by Comcast for Fresno CA. Using the Standard frequency set only 30 channels were discovered. To get the rest like USA and SyFy I still need to find those frequencies. Comcast isn't user friendly when it comes to technical information. No doubt I will solve my problem over time but for now the channels that were discovered work well.

                    This product is still relatively new to me, but I like it so far. The quality on my SD channels isn't as good as I'd hope, but the HD channels look perfect.

                    Comments about Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1250 PCI Express TV Tuner for Windows:

                    I installed the TV Tuner on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. At first it didn't seem to work straight out of the box, but it was just a problem of the driver in Ubuntu. Very easy to fix though, in less than an hour it was working perfectly. Works great with the MythTV Server I have on my Ubuntu also.
                    Only thing I don't like about it is that to get the remote control working, you must use a IR receiver on USB. The cable that was given does not work on Ubuntu. But that is the only thing I couldn't get to working out of the box.

                      Use it to watch over the air digital TV in Northern Maine. Very easy install and setup. Much better than Windows Media Center. Win TV pulls in more channels than Media Center. Hooked up my VCR with the provided S video adapter. Now I can watch and record all my old VCR tapes.Media Center would not allow VCR or other external signals. I highly recommend this product!!

                          You have to use the Direct TV remote to change channels and the Hauppauge remote to change the vol. Tech support was not able to resolve the problem.
