Hauppauge HD PVR

 

Records HD programming without copy protection concerns (via the "analog hole"). Burns Blu-ray-compatible, high-definition DVDs. High-quality audio and component video cables included.

Doesn't function as a standalone DVR. Complex setup involves multiple software packages. Remote is nonfunctional with bundled software.

Tech-savvy enthusiasts looking to grab high-definition video from various sources—such as a game console or existing DVR—will love Hauppauge's HD PVR, but mainstream consumers pining for an easy DVR replacement without monthly fees should look elsewhere.

Overall, the PVR is a solid performer for just under $200 in price.  It's simply a question of your needs.  If you are happy with your current DVR and don't feel the need to watch content on other devices, you are probably fine with your existing...

While it won't do 1080P, I'm really happy with the affordable solution Hauppauge has put out for recording HD video. Yes you have to use components but it's a small price to pay to be able to archive shows off of a DVR or record video from an Xbox 360...

Hauppauge HD PVR

 

An effective way to export HD content from an HD set-top box, but it's far from elegant and a touch pricey too.

Consumer review by:

Limited fomat options

 

This product is easy to set up, and creates digital files that are of good quality, perhaps lacking in sharpness but with nicely saturated colors. My only complaint is that the resulting file sizes are huge. There is no option to record to divx or xvid...

Video To Go

 

This product is great. I can now take movies and TV shows from my satellite DVR and record them on MY BOOK portable hard drive. This allows me to play them back at a later time. The playback is with a WD TV live media player. This is true HD playback....

Good

 

Easy setup. The recorded video is choppy unless you set it to the highest quality, could be my computer. The recorded video is crystal clear, the only down fall is it takes about 9 gigs for a movie.
