Very bad product, it did not work since I buy... do not spend your money..
Jonathan Castillo Vargas
The device doesn't have video output for tv, so, if you are using the sabrent, recording from cable, then you can't have cable in your tv.

Could not get my my Dell Windows 7 device to recognize and install drivers.

Size Name: TV
I was overall pretty sattisfied with the product. It came with the tuner, all neccessary drives, remote control (which I never used), and WinDVR to capture footage with.

It did pretty much what it promised, allows you to capture from any analog device such as a VCR or anything with Compostite Out jacks. Only problem is that the actuall tuner itself does not have an audio in left and audio in right, therefore forcing you to buy a audio composite to stereo 3.5mm jack. Another problem was the ability to only capture in the resolution of 720x480(unless you buy other expensive capturing programs). I recommend getting the free program Virtualdub and compressing to divx after you capture as many codecs drop frames when trying to compress while capturing(at least on my computer[2.2gHz proccessor])

Overall, I'm satisfied with the purchase and do recommend it IF you can't or won't afford anything better. Now, I leave you with a list of Pros and Cons.

Pros:

1. Captures decent-to-good looking quality video if configure right.

2. Great for getting all that old VCR footage on the computer and on to a DVD

3. Very simple to install, and comes with capturing program. Though VirtualDub is highly recommended.

4. Three video inputs - RF signal, Compostie, and S-video!

5. External device, so you don't have to open your PC.

Cons:

1. Composite audio to stereo 3.5 mm jack needed for sound.

2. Extremely large files unless compressed with VirtualDub afterwards.

3. Can only capture in 720x480 resolution. Unless expensive programs are bought.

4. I guess you get what you pay for but quality could be a bit better.

In my opinnion this product it's pretty well by the price but depends a lot of the configuration of the computer and the signal that you get.

A regular "USER" will have a lot of problems, the computer reboots and a Blue Screen (clasic blue screen of windows due to memory problems) appears when i unplugged the tv box.

I test it also in Win2000 SP4 and i can't put the tv box working in that OS.

After many test i found the way to work properly, i always see if the pc have SP2 and DirectX 9.0c and then i use the wizard of New Hardware Found to install the driver and then install the remote control and the application. in that way the box function properly but DEPENDS A LOT OF THE SIGNAL because i use an internal antenna and is very difficult to get a good sign.

Whit RCA (composed) an S-Video works fine but somethimes the image blinks also the audio so... it is a good product for the price but you can find a better ones.

When you are using the remote control and press OFF the entire PC is shut down not only the application so....

But i can't complain... To watch the World Cup on your work is a very good option. The box function, after many try's works fine.

I bought 15 tv boxes and all function well. no one was broke. !!!

(sorry for my not so good english)

Español:

Es un buen producto, tiene clavos al momento de instalarlo y a veces saca pantallazo azul ademas se resetea la computadora cuando se desconecta el TV BOX pero cuando se logra configurar, se ve bastante bien, aunque depende mucho de la señal de la antena que se utilice.

A veces con cable brinca la pantalla y el audio, pero si se ve...

Size Name: tv Verified Purchase
I recently built a home theater PC for my living room. With football season coming up, I wanted to be able to receive high definition TV from free over the air (OTA) providers. After shopping around, I found this product, and although it is relatively new, I decided to try it, as it is half the price of the only competing product I can find, the ATI HDTV Wonder.

I have zero complaints. After following the directions on the Avermedia website, Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 (which this product is designed for) recognized it with no problems.

For anyone who is not familiar with home theater PCs, HDTV, and such, I will caution you...there is a lot to learn in order to get it all to work. A great resource for you is the Windows Media Center webpage from Microsoft: [...]

Read the articles and check out the forums--there are many highly qualified people there who can help you with all of your questions about building, or modifying your own HTPC. Good luck!

It works pretty well with S-video and composed, but TV capture is bad, the good thing is the price, is really cheap, but if you want to capture with nice quality don't bother with this one.

The TV card work's fine, since I have Windows 7 64bit with media center, the OS find the drivers and install all from internet, but when I tried to install the software WinTV v7, downloaded from Hauppauge web site it need the original cd to install, then I found that the cd that comes with the card did not have the winTV v6 as advertized, it has only the drivers. I can not install the software unless I buy a cd from Hauppauge that cost 9.95
