    Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1250 reviews

    WinTV-HVR-1250 PCI Express TV Tuner for Windows is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from WinTV-HVR-1250 works well with Ubuntu 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tuner Card downloaded and installed the latest drivers from Hauppauge site. works awesome in my windows 7 machine, with windows Media center. Using for HTPC. Use it to record OTA signal, excellent quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! Easy install! 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!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful TV Tuner, works on Ubuntu too! 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well with Windows Media Center 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV Card I'm guess I'm sort of an expert in PC W/S TV cards. I had the 1st one ever made by Miro (a German Company) and have followed every option out there since the 486 days. I have had many other TV cards and the latest are all by Hauppauge. I have a couple of other Hauppauge TV cards HVR-2250 which are no longer available. This card is just as good and in some areas even better. They make a great DVR/TV card for your windows PC. I had full control and ease of use when I converted all our VCR tapes to digital. If you want to freeze frame copy TV or DRV a show this card does it all with ease. It has nice window sizing options that older models don't have so you have room to work on your computer while watching TV. Still no company has implemented the desktop TV and Thru-see desktop TV that ATI had with the all-in-wonder cards before they were bought out and stripped by AMD. The new Version 8 software and driver is better now too. Great card for real inexpensive price.....I bought 2 for new workstations.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just getting started 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.
