On a fast Ethernet connection, it works really well, on wifi, only smaller resolutions look good, meaning wireless laptop- fair, Android phone fantastic.
The instructions stink! I configure IT hardware for a living, It still took two hours of trial and error to get it working the way I wanted. If you just accept the defaults, you will not have this device performing to it's full potential.
This product is sold overseas by PCTV Systems, I do not know if Hauppauge has a interest in this company, or is just licensing this product from them, but they are a much better source of information. I additionally emailed Hauppauge support some technical questions and have not received a response yet, not even an automated "we REALLY care".
The overseas version lists two tuners, the Hauppauge US version only has one, and only one user can access the device at a time.
Is this better then the Sling Box, Avermedia's products or the Volkano blast, I do not know, but I have been very happy with Hauppauge in the past, time will tell if they continue to develop and support this product. As of right now, I am left wondering.
The record function does not work as promised. It has trouble detecting the USB flash drive storage. I cant get it to reformat my 32Gb Duracell flash drive and the only way I can get it to detect any USB flash drive is by doing a factory reset. There is no feature allowing you to add a channel, you only have the option to rescan the channels. Not good if you have to use a rotor to access all your channels. The record functionality is so buggy its pretty well unusable and since it only has 2.4ghz wifi the playback halts so often I had to disable wifi and use ethernet and cut the streaming rate way back to keep it from hesitating a few times per minute. Hauppauge Broadway is in sad need of a firmware update and its been well over 6 months since their last one. Almost like they have abandoned this product. And they never did respond to my tech support email. They got me all excited about what they said it could do in their ads but it doesn't come close to what they say. Mine is just sitting there now. Hopefully they come out with an update that makes it more usable! Shame on you Hauppauge!
Update -2013- Our router and providers antennae were fighthing each other which kept knocking us offline. Providers made antennae primary which caused Broadway to stop working. I called Wireless provider and they could not fix problem. While technician here I called Hauppauge support and together they fixed the issue by changing port number in wireless providers system to 7799. We use Broadway all the time.
