Watch High-definition Digital TV on Your Computer
The WinTV-HVR-1250 lets you watch ATSC digital TV as well as QAM digital TV and analog cable TV directly on your computer. ATSC digital TV, which typically requires an antenna for reception, is the over-the-air HDTV standard for North America. ATSC broadcasts range in resolution from standard definition up to the high definition 1080i format. (To check the ATSC digital transmissions in your area, input your zip code at titantv.com.)

The WinTV-HVR-1250 also lets you watch and record QAM channels, which are unencrypted digital channels broadcast by your local cable operator. If you don't have access to digital television channels yet, you can also watch regular analog cable television.

In addition to high-definition video, the card also features a dbx-TV stereo decoder for great TV sound. The card has S-Video and stereo audio inputs that allow for connecting VCRs or cable/satellite set top boxes.

Your Own Personal Digital Video Recorder!
With the included Hauppauge's SoftPVR for Windows XP and Media Center software, you can easily record TV shows to your hard disk. Several recording options are available depending on your playback needs; higher quality video requires more disk space. Generally, 5 GB of disk space is used per hour of ATSC digital TV recordings, and 1.5 GB of disk space is used per hour of analog recording.

With the WinTV-Scheduler software, you can easily schedule the recordings of your favorite television shows daily, weekly, or just once. You can then play back the recordings at your leisure, burn them onto CD or DVD for playback on another computer or your television, or with video editing software (not included), you can even edit the shows. This is great for saving favorite movie clips, clips of your home team's dramatic last-second win, or your favorite player's grand slam.

The Hauppauge 1187 WinTV-HVR-1250 plugs into a PCI express X1 or X16 slot, and is compatible with Windows Vista, XP with Service Pack 2, and Windows XP Media Center Edition. With XP-MCE and Vista, you can add the WinTV-HVR-1250 as either the primary or secondary TV tuner. The Microsoft Media Center application supports up to two TV tuners so if you have a second tuner in addition to the WinTV-HVR-1250, you can watch one channel while recording another.

Very simple install and works great with Windows 7 64bit.

I tried watching live TV from a digital signal and the picture quality is much better, as expected.

The problem occurs randomly, sometimes after only a few minutes and sometimes it may take hours.

I was able to get this to work on my Comcast service (no cable box, non-premium, QAM channels) on Windows Media Center, Windows 7 PC, with a bit of work. It was not completely the devices fault, though it may have bit of a weak tuner in pulling in the signal. I found that even though my Sony HDTV could see the QAM signals, the 1250 could not.

It turned out that I had to remove the distribution amplifier and be sure that all the coax cables were as short and well made as possible.

The symptom that the 1250 gives when it doesn't receive analog or QAM signals is that the "tuners" are not found. Initially it found the analog tuner since Comcast still has a few analog channels, but no QAM tuner showed up when Media Center was being set up. Sometimes the Analog tuner didn't show up when I tried a rescan.

However, Once I got the distribution amps out of the way, reduced the number of splitters, and made the coax cables as short as possible the QAM and Analog tuners showed up consistently in Media Center setup and the system found over 100 QAM channels.

The other gotcha is that the 1250 doesn't show all the channels it detects (so they don't show up in the Media Center Guide). It only shows you what it thinks are the "unscrambled" channels. However, even though the card thinks it is a scrambled channel, I found that if I looked at each channel, some of them would be decoded. I could then check the channel to be included in the active channel list. In the end I went from the setup saying I only had 35 channels to having nearly 100 QAM stations.

So now I have all the non-premium stations visible.

The remaining challenge is with Windows 7 which doesn't give me guide information on most of the channels.

This TV Tuner Card works well once you download the new drivers, etc. from the website. As I use it primarily for putting old VHS tapes to my hard drive to burn to DVD, I was a little frustrated at the lack of instructions as to how to set the Tuner Card up. That seems to be a common problem with most electronic items these days though as this is not the first product I have purchased with less than satisfactory documentation. Once I got it all figured out after much research on the internet, it works great. I would have given it 4, maybe even 5 stars if the instructions had been better.

Worked out of the box with Ubuntu 12.04 and Kaffeine. Also this is a digital card, this makes the default directory "/dev/dvb" Not "/dev/video". The built in Ubuntu kernel drivers worked flawless.

Update;

The pros:
It's small. I wedged between two video cards without it blocking the fans too much.
It works great I can pause live tv and pick up where I left off or schedule a recording and watch it later.
The OTA 1080HD looks fantastic and the Clear QAM256 channels looks great too.

The cons:
Cant hook this up to a standard cable box, It fails to find channel 3.
Not really a con but the file size is huge for 1080HD 1/2hr is 4-6 gigs ez.

Great card for Linux. I do not know how well it performs under other OS. But I bought it build my HTPC with MythTV and so far I am very happy with it. It worked out of the box.

Very easy install, only had to put the divice in the right slot and it worked just fine in windows media center on a windows 7 x64 box. can't think of anything that has installed easier. didn't even need the driver disk since windows found the driver for me as soon as it was booted up.

**Second update for 2/9/2013** I guess I jinxed myself when I updated the review. Literally just a few hours after I updated this review an interrupt storm occurred during the recording of an analog channel. So for the time being the rating will remain at four stars.

**Updated 2/9/2013** I'm going to bump the rating up a star because it appears that the two main problems I was experiencing have been resolved. My motherboard apparently has a problem resuming from sleep which was causing the issues I described in the original review below. I recently bought Windows 8 and decided to dual boot it to start with to see how well I would like it. What I found was when the computer resumed from sleep anything recorded in Media Center after that would be corrupted (I never experienced that problem with Windows 7). So I decided to try hibernate instead of sleep to see if that would help. This was about three weeks ago and so far there have been no more corrupted recordings, no problems with analog channels working, and no interrupt storms. I'll wait a few more weeks to see if they happen again and if they don't I'll give it five stars.

**Original Review** I bought this tuner card so that I could finally retire my VCR from almost 12 years of service. I like how easy it is to use with Windows Media Center to both watch and record shows with. However I have experienced a few problems with it, two involving analog TV and one with digital TV.

The first problem is that sometimes when my computer is resumed from a sleep state the tuner will no longer tune in analog channels. I get the message that no TV signal is found. However Clear QAM channels work fine when this happens. The computer has to be rebooted for analog channels to work again.
