The WinTV-HVR-2255 PCI Express Dual TV Tuner from Hauppauge features built-in dual TV tuners allowing you to watch one channel while recording content from another channel or watch two channels simultaneously. The integrated MPEG-2 hardware encoder allows you to capture high definition digital ATSC and QAM to disk in its original digital quality.

Notes

For Analog TV reception, you need an analog cable TV connection. If you have a digital cable set top box or a satellite box, you can connect via either Composite or S-Video inputs.

For ATSC over-the-air digital TV reception, a high gain antenna is recommended. To check the ATSC TV broadcasts in your area, go to TitanTV.com and enter your postal code.

Depending on the strength of your antenna, you might not be able to receive all broadcasts listed at TitanTV.

To watch clear QAM channels, you should use Windows Media Center from Windows 7 or Windows 8. Clear QAM digital cable TV channels are not available on all cable networks. For more information, contact your cable TV provider.

ATSC TV recordings are not 100% compatible with DVD, and therefore you cannot burn them directly to a DVD.

Dual Tuner TV Board

Better digital TV reception! Receive more digital TV channels, with better reception.
Dual digital TV receivers for ATSC or clear QAM. Watch and record two ATSC or clear QAM digital TV programs at the same time. Watch and record all ATSC and QAM formats, including the high definition 1080i format. Clear QAM digital TV channels are TV channels which are broadcast "in the clear" on your cable TV network.
Dual built-in hardware MPEG-2 encoders for recording analog cable TV, for the best system performance. Watch and record two cable TV programs at the same time. When recording analog cable TV, the dual built in hardware MPEG-2 encoders let your PC run at full speed.
Built-in antenna splitter allows you to make one connection to either cable TV or an ATSC antenna, and watch and record up to 2 channels.
Windows Media Center compatible. Now supports Windows 7 and Windows 8 (with Media Center add on).
Single slot PCI Express (PCIe) X1 board, half height.

ATSC Over-the-Air Digital TV

Watch one ATSC digital TV program while recording another ATSC program to your PC's hard disk using high quality MPEG-2. TV recordings will typically consume 5 GB of disk space per hour for ATSC high definition.
Built-in antenna splitter allows you to make one connection to an ATSC antenna but watch and record up to 2 channels.

Clear QAM Digital Cable TV

Dual clear QAM digital cable TV receivers. Watch one clear QAM digital cable TV program while recording another clear QAM program to your PC's hard disk using high quality MPEG-2.
Built-in cable TV splitter allows you to make one connection to cable TV but watch and record 2 TV programs at the same time.
To receive clear QAM digital cable TV, you need to use either Windows 7 Media Center or the Hauppauge WinTV v7 application.
Not all cable TV networks send clear QAM channels. Please check with your local cable operator for the availability of clear QAM digital cable TV.

Two Analog Tuners and Hardware Encoders

Dual built-in high quality hardware MPEG-2 encoders, so your PC continues to run at full speed while watching, pausing and recording analog cable TV.
Dual 125 channel cable ready TV tuners built-in. With dbx-TV stereo decoder, for great TV sound.
Built-in cable TV splitter allows you to make one connection to cable TV but watch and record 2 TV programs at the same time.
Composite/S-Video and audio inputs, for cable or satellite set top boxes or VCRs.

External Audio/Visual Inputs

Two sets of A/V inputs are included: one on the back panel bracket of the WinTV-HVR-2255 and one on the "Auxiliary A/V panel" which requires a chassis slot.
S-Video, composite video and stereo audio supported on both inputs.
Record external audio/video with dual built-in high quality hardware MPEG-2 encoders.
