Never miss your favorite TV show again!

The PCTV 292e comes with the TVCenter 6 and DistanTV applications for Windows. With DistanTV, the 292e can stream your favorite TV programs to your iPhone, iPad or your Android-based tablets or smartphones plus a PC or Mac. TV recordings made with the PCTV 292e can be scheduled and played back from mobile devices as well as from the PC or Mac.

The 292e turns your PC into a high definition DVR

Plug the 292e into your PC and turn it into a HDTV digital video recorder (DVR). With the included TVCenter 6 application, you can watch HD or SD TV on your PC screen, in a window or full screen. A built-in Electronic Program Guide (EPG) allows you to see what's on TV now and what's coming up. Schedule TV recordings with the EPG. Plus pause live TV and record your favourite TV programs in the full digital TV format. The PCTV 292e is fully backward compatible to DVB-T and delivers outstanding reception for both DVB-T and DVB-T2 broadcast standards. In addition to live over-the-air DVB-T2 HD TV, the 290e can also receive DVB-T. If you live in an area which does not broadcast the high definition DVB-T2 signal yet, you can watch the standard Freeview DVB-T and upgrade to DVB-T2 when it comes to your area.

This is a review for the 290e not the 292e:

This is about the only PC TV tuner on sale in the UK which supports DVB-T2, which is required for receiving the Freeview HD channels. I purchased this for my MythTV system after reading that drivers had been written and intially I had to compile and install them myself, but from Linux kernel 3.0 they are included (I am using Ubuntu 11.10 which has support for this tuner built in).

This is an excellent piece of kit for MythTV, it gets a better reception than my exisiting Nova-T 500 card and is more convenient as it is USB rather than PCI (more modern motherboards have phased out the PCI slot in favour of a PCIe one), so it is easier to upgrade a motherboard without worrying which slots are on it. The only downside is that it's only a single tuner, but in MythTV you can create multiple virtual tuners to record more than one TV channel from a single tuner (as long as the channels are on the same multiplex). At the moment I am using this in tandem with my Nova-T 500 card to have a total of 6 tuners, but ultimately I intend to replace the Nova-T with another one of these, probably about the time I'll be looking for a more powerful mini-ITX motherboard.

If you are looking to add Freeview HD channels to your MythTV set-up then this is about the only choice you have, at the moment, and if you are using a Linux kernel > 3.0 or don't mind compiling your own drivers for it then it practically works 'out of the box' in as much as anything under Linux works 'out of the box'.

Arrived quickly in quite a battered box but the contents had survived. I bought this device for a tower PC running Windows 7 Pro and having read other reviews had already decided just to install the drivers and use Windows Media Centre ("WMC"). Now that I've got it properly set up and connected to my rooftop antenna I've got well over 100 channels (most of which I'll never watch) including all the Freeview HD ones. With WMC in full screen mode on an HD channel the picture on my 1920 * 1080 monitor compares favourably with the picture on my "real" HD TV. That's why I like it. Non-HD channels are not that good in full screen mode so I put them in a smaller window sized to make them really sharp. An HD channel in a smaller window is really sharp!

Now the gotcha's. Firstly you can't plug your coax antenna directly into the stick but have to plug it into an adapter that comes with the stick, and then plug that adapter into the stick. This means that it sticks out quite a long way behind the PC and if the USB port is some distance above the floor, the weight of the coax can put a potentially significant bending stress on the stick's USB connector. I used the rather short USB extender that came in the box to help get around these issues. It is also worth noting that the connectors require an unexpectedly firm push to get an working connection.

Secondly the documentation is, to put it mildly, sparse. If you open the CD in Windows Explorer rather than letting it autostart then you'll find a folder called Windows Media Centre which contains both 32 bit and 64 bit versions of the program that you need to run.

Well I will start by saying that if you buy this and you plan on using the provided whip aerial, then your in for some disappointment. I live in an area with good signal, and using the whip aerial only managed to pick up 31 channels, none of them HD.
As we have no roof aerial I bought an indoor powered aerial and a signal booster, I now get 117 channels and all the HD channels. It all works great, the picture has not broken up, neither have I seen an pixellation.
The tuner itself is tiny, and with Windows 7 64 bit I just plugged it in and I was away.
I use Windows Media Centre, as others have recommended, and it all works just fine.

Firstly, I don't usually bother writing reviews but...
I can only comment about use with windows media player in windows 7 64 bit system (Quadcore). I have a standard high gain freeview aerial in my loft.
I read a few reviews about this product including difficulty with EPG and tuner priority.
Decided to buy and installed - I also have two other hauppauge PCI tuner cards installed - I did not bother with the bundled software as windows 7 recognised device and installed drivers automatically - so now WMC regonises 4 tuners are installed.
When I set up signal automatically with WMC it did not find EPG information for HD channels.
I took online advice to maually install tuners - when WMC listed the 4 tuners I unchecked the 3 hauppauge and continued with only the 290e tuner - when WMC asked "install more tuners" I confirmd and checked the remaining 3 hauppauge tuners and continued through process and channel search - it took longer than usual but I ended up with 105 channels instead of the usual 101. When I checked the EPG the HD channels and programs were listed.
Without any other configuration I set the EPG to record "The Hour" in both Digital freeview and HD both recording at the same time. There was no conflict with tuner priority and both programs recorded.
What a difference in HD! Yes, both picture and sound was noticebly better than the standard digital freeview recording.
With my setup I can now record 4 digital freeview channels or 3 digital freeview and 1 HD channel at the same time - useful sometimes.
Hope this helps...
Enjoy!
