Hauppauge HD-PVR Review

  • 4.3 / 5
    • The good:
      Functional, Versatile, Can work with anything
    • The bad:
      Expensive, Gets hard to calibrate along the way
    The Hauppage HD PVR is a high definition personal video recorder which has the versatility to record even directly from the satellite set top boxes or cable TVs for as much as 1080i. The S-video inputs and the basic classification composite offer the luxury of digitizing your classic home videos even if they have been in the closet for more than a decade. That is done directly through the aid of the VCR. The Hauppage HD PVR allows you to change TV channels through the built-in IR blaster as you are also able to record the schedules for your favorite shows with the help of the Hauppage’s WinTV scheduler for a much more intensive TV recording. This persona; video recorder provides the unmatched impeccable high-quality recordings for your most sought after high quality television programs. The HD-PVR records in the AVCHD format which is the main source for burning Blu-ray DVD discs which means that you are provided with an innovated feel even for your almost forgotten recorded memories. Thus does not only focus on the quality of the visuals though. It does have the intended prowess for the audio quality as well. So even if you are not the technology professional who has the knowledge for doing this type of burning discs and all that, you can still find this product enjoyable. If you are looking for a bonus, the Hauppage HD PVR comes with different kinds of connectible to be able to give you an ergonomic feel and connect instantly to your recording device. Another magnificent quality of this is that it does not inferior you because even if you do not have a personal computer which is highly capacitated, you are able to record high definition recordings. That is solely due to the fact that the Hauppage HD PVR is already high-end on its own. It does have the specifications of being a heavy processor to cater your needs. Installation process is not that hard to do as well. The software installment is actually pain-free and does not actually eat up your most precious time. However, the one thing that will probably annoy you is the fact that it does not have the consistency for editing videos. It is somewhat complicated and is not that easy to calibrate. Also, others say that although it is stated that it is High Definition, it does not really spectacularly seem like one. Though the hooking up process, the Arcsoft software installation, and capturing is easy as a piece of cake, it is not guaranteed that everything will be as easy breezy. Somehow, it tends to get complicated on the next few steps of configuring. It inevitably gets tricky on those future processes. So in totality, if you are looking for a product that has the certain stand out quality to it, or something that will be a stunner and will probably attract lots of people, then maybe this is not it. In totality, the Hauppage HD PVR is great. But then again, it is not that great after all.
