Product Description

The new HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition: the best way to record your Xbox 360 or PS3 game play on your PC!
Now with 1080p 'no delay passthrough' and HDMI input and output.

HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition is the latest in Hauppauge's series of HD video game recorders. HD PVR 2 adds some great new features to the HD PVR, which was the world’s first High Definition video recorder for making real-time H.264 compressed recordings (Blu-ray quality) from your Xbox or PS3 game play. HD PVR 2 records HD video gameplay from either HDMI or Component video. To make setup super easy, you can leave your video game console at 1080p and record either HDMI or Component video at up to 1080i.

Upload to YouTube and share your best games with your friends ... in HD!

HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition includes cables and software you need to capture high definition gameplay in realtime. For connection to a Sony PS3, we include a HD Component video cable. For both game consoles, an HDMI cable is supplied to connect HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition to your TV set.

As said on GeekTonic:
"Now I think anyone watching me play videogames is a sure-fire way to put them to sleep – or at least laugh at my videogame performance. But I know there is a very large number of videogamers using the HD PVR to record their video gameplay."

New features for the HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition

The new HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition was specially designed for the dedicated Xbox 360 or PS3 gamer, and makes the installation easy yet still brings the excellent video quality of the original HD PVR. It features HDMI 'no delay passthrough' at up to 1080p with HDMI cables, Component in to HDMI out to support the PS3, plus a record button to start the recording without having to be at your PC! And HD PVR 2 has a new, smaller design to make carrying to your friends home to record their game play super easy.

No delay passthrough, for zero delay recording and gaming.

HD PVR 2's 'no delay' video passthrough gives zero delay on your TV monitor, and makes HD video recordings while you play your games at the same time! When using the 'no delay' video passthrough with a PS3, you will use the supplied Component Video cable from your PS3 into the HD PVR 2, and then you'll use HDMI to connect to your TV set. When using the "no delay" video passthrough with an Xbox360, you'll bring HDMI in from the Xbox and then HDMI out to your TV set (additional HDMI cable required for Xbox 360).

High Performance, High Definition recording!

At long last, a personal video game recorder that offers high quality recordings from your HD gameplay!

At the heart of the HD PVR 2 is a pro quality H.264 high-definition encoder that was originally designed for the broadcast TV industry. Hauppauge's HD PVR 2 is built-in for high-performance, high-quality TV recordings at up to 1080i resolution, 720p or 480p.

The HD PVR 2 records in the AVCHD format, which is the format used to master Blu-ray discs. You have the option of recording at data rates from 1 Mbs to 13.5Mbs, so you can choose the video quality you need.

There are three H.264 formats you can choose when recording a video:
  • .TS, which is a generic 'transport stream' compatible with many digital media players
  • .M2TS, which is compatible with the Sony Playstation3
  • .MP4, which is compatible with the XBox360

The new Record button on HD PVR 2 makes it super easy to start and stop record sessions.

MP4 files are used with many video editors, like Sony Vegas, for editing. TS files are also called 'AVCHD' files and are used to burn Blu-ray DVD movies (Blu-ray burner software not included).

Style Name: HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition Plus - Mac & PC
This device is easily the best on the market. Took me 10 minutes to set up but I am quite technical..so if you're not technical the good thing about Hauppauge is that they are a worldwide company and you can contact a local office for technical support which is nice.

It records in the nicest quality and to be honest, nothing out there compares to it. Also, a few weeks ago they announced their new software "Hauppauge Capture" which is an absolute beast! Now I can record Youtube videos and my voice at the same time. It also comes with their software called StreamEez which is awesome cause it doesn't use any PC usage whatsoever. It allows you to stream to Twitch and UStream at the moment. It's hardware streaming I believe? Or so their Twitter says anyway and it works great which I love.

Honestly, I had the first one (HD PVR Gaming Edition) and their products are so good. Not been let down yet. THANKS HAUPPAUGE! WOOOHOO

Style Name: HD PVR- HD Video Capture Device Verified Purchase
I bought this item so that I could transfer VHS films into the computer for editing and burning onto DVD, also for capturing clips from BluRay discs. Every review I've read here talks about connecting games consoles to the device and although I realise that it is marketed for this purpose, I didn't see why it shouldn't work with any video source as an input (why do people want to record their gaming experiences anyway? Seems odd to me).
Having read from many reviews that you just 'plug in and go' that's exactly what I did and - nothing. The component video input produced a blank screen on the computer. As a result I tried connecting with s-video leads and did get a picture but the quality was poor (which I expected). Having decided it was not good enough I had a think about it and reconnected the component leads but could still not get any signal.
Eventually after a couple of hours I had a delve into the settings on my Blu-ray player. I found that I could choose the kind of signal to be produced at the component output. I hadn't looked at this before because there was no need, everything else being connected via the elegant, efficient and easy HDMI sockets. As soon as I switched the component output from the default YPbPr to RGB I had a perfect, HiDef Blu-ray quality picture on my computer screen.
The Hauppauge appears to be a nice piece of kit but suffers from the affliction that so many electronic devices do, the unbelievably poor instruction manual, or in this case instruction 'sheet-of-paper'. Another example is the on-screen menu choice to record your video capture. You can choose between Playstation, AVCHD, or XBox. All this choice does is to determine the format of the recorded video, either .m2ts .ts or .mp4 formats.

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)

Style Name: HD PVR Gaming Edition
I've had my Hauppauge HD-PVR Gaming Edition for about 5 months now. It is fantastic and it does exactly what you need it to do.

In the box is the PVR and some cables along with the instructions.
The PVR looks cool, and when you're recording it has a awesome green light.

Setting up the PVR is simple. All the wires you need come with it. First I connected the PVR to my TV using the component cables, and then I connected it to my PS3 easily using the cables provided. Then you set your PS3 to the right mode and connect the PVR to your PC with the USB cable provided and your pretty much done. You install the software provided and you click capture and it captures whatever is on the TV screen.

The software isn't amazing though. I expected much better, but it gets the job done. I run it on my laptop (A notsogood laptop) and it works fine. The software has a built in YouTube uploader where you can login to your YouTube account and upload from there. I don't use this option because it usually doesn't upload in HD when I do it that way, but doing it manually works fine.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants to record their Xbox or PS3 footage, it does what it says it does. Simple.

If you want to see what the quality is like, just search 'mw3 how to search and destroy jazszzz' and my video will show up. Thanks!
