Product Description

Product Description

Record your high definition TV programs to your PC, using high quality H.264! HD PVR is the world’s first High-Definition video recorder for making real-time H.264 compressed recordings at resolutions up to 1080i. HD-PVR records component video (YCrCb) from cable TV and satellite set top boxes, with a built-in IR blaster to automatically change TV channels for scheduled recordings. Audio is recorded using AAC.

The recording format is AVCHD, which can be used to burn Blu-ray DVD disks. Two hours of HD recordings, recorded at 5 Mbits/sec, can be burnt onto a standard 4.7 GByte DVD-R or DVD-RW disk for playback on a Blu-ray DVD player.

The HD PVRs amazing recording quality allows personal archival of your favorite high definition TV programs from any component video HD set top box. The HD PVR also has standard definition composite and S-Video inputs so you can record your old home video tapes into an AVCHD format for creating Blu-ray DVD recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars just the job 4 July 2012
By bill
Style Name:HD PVR- HD Video Capture Device|Verified Purchase
At last I can archive my Sky+HD recordings (even the 1TB hard drive fills up SO quickly!). Using this HD PVR, plus an "HD Anywhere HDMI to Component Converter" and my PC I can now clear some space on my Sky+HD box by transferring the clips I want to keep on to a DVD-RW (in HD quality) to be played back on a blu-ray player. The editing software supplied is VERY basic; the AVCHD picture quality is excellent but the "edits" (hah!) are pretty rough - but so far I've had no luck searching the net for an alternative because of the ".ts" file type that the capture software produces. My only regret is not buying this sooner. If you have got an HD box bursting at the seams with your favourite stuff, and you have a DVD writer on your PC then this HD PVR is the answer to your storage problems ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Best On The Market ! 3 Oct 2012
By mike
Style Name:HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition HDMI Capture
I got my new HD PVR2 today, and in fifteen minutes I was up and recording - it's that simple to use! I love my old HD PVR and I thought I would take a gamble and upgrade, just for ease of use, and to free up a lot of wires I had behind the TV. I am so chuffed with it, it records very well in 1080p. It's simple to use, and it looks even smaller than what you see in some unboxing videos. I just record my games for fun, nothing serious, and having the HD PVR1 or 2 makes it more fun, as it's no hassle to get set up and start recording.

If you are serious about wanting to start up some kind of gaming channel on You Tube for fun, or to make a little money, the Hauppauge HD PVR really is the best on the market. Yes, there are other products out there, but with the Hauppage you get great long-lasting quality and the very best in customer service. I had a problem with my old HD PVR1 skipping. I emailed Customer Support, and within the hour I had a reply with the solution (which was to plug the USB cable into the back of the PC where the motherboard is). They really do go out of their way to give good customer support, so go and pick up one, you will not regret it .

I know a lot of people hate the arcsoft software that comes with the pvr 2 but its software has now been updated and it has a lot of new functions like mic support to do commentary videos inside the software with no need for additional software and it also has it stand alone streaming software built in, so no need to use xsplit it also uses a lot less cpu usage.

check out this video to see a preview of the new software ( search you tube for a video called....Hauppauge HD PVR 2 NEW Software PREVIEW )

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 9 Nov 2012
By HMSgame
Style Name:HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition HDMI Capture|Verified Purchase
Purchased this item so that I could record gameplay from my Xbox 360 in HD.

Quality of the recorded footage is superb, recording in 1080p at 29.97fps. The audio is also high quality and I can't fault it at all.

It is very easy to set up, the installation CD contains drivers for all Windows OS (including NT) and will have you set up in minutes.

The only complains I have are that the box can get quite warm (unavoidable) and that when not connected via USB (or the power outage on the USB changes) then it no longer passes through the HDMI signal (this causes my Xbox to reset). But this is no major factor considering my laptop is always on anyway.

The 2 HDMI cables received are also of high quality and much appreciated, a PS3 cable was received and unneeded by me, but still appears to be quality.

+ High quality recording
+ Easy to use
+ Works with both Xbox/PS3 and comes with both cable sets
- Needs usb to be connected to function (if console running through it all the time)

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Well 3 Jan 2012
Style Name:HD PVR Gaming Edition|Verified Purchase
This seems to be the de facto standard on the market for recording video gaming in HD, which was the reason I decided to get one. I went for the gaming edition as the cost was only slightly more than the standard version and it comes with a component cable with plugs for the PS3/ Xbox 360. If you already have component cables for your consoles(s) then there will be no real benefit to buying this version other than the alternate colour scheme of all black/ green light. Inside the box in addition to the device itself is the aforementioned cable, a heavy duty component cable for input to your TV, the power adapter, user guide and a CD containing the capture software and drivers. It's very small so should sit comfortably wherever you decide to put it.

It's very simple to get started, just connect the component cable from your console to the input on the PVR, then attach the heavy cable from the PVR to your TV, and hook the USB from the PVR to your PC. Installing the drivers is just a case of plugging in the USB cable and then running the CD, then you can install the capture software, Arcsoft Showbiz. This is what you run on your PC to save the video down into a file you can edit and is very simple to use, although I would recommend getting some additional software to edit and encode your videos later (I'm using AVS Video Editor which is pretty easy to use and supports the M2TS files that the PVR can output). On Windows 7 64bit everything installed without any issues. Power is required on the device even when not recording if you want to use the console while the PVR is hooked up - just something to bear in mind as it pretty much means it will require a permanent power socket. Another thing to note is that the USB cable is quite short, probably 0.
