Excellent TV Card, remote, not so much

The card installed beautifully on my Windows 8 machine. Windows Media Center is playing very well with it. I could not get the remote to work at all, but that may be because of conflicts with the other remote control and my wireless keyboard/remote. I didn't really intend to use it anyway.

One of the best TV Tuner Cards

Latest drivers automatically installed in Windows 8.1. Works fine with Windows Media Center and Hauppauge WinTV 7. There are up and downs using one or the other. The remote control works fine with both programs. I like Picture in Picture feature and recording while watching a different program, or listening radio. I could not get working the IR Blaster feature with any of the Rogers boxes (maybe it is a compatibility issue). Overall I am pleased with the purchase and I like the image quality on Rogers analog cable.

Drivers wouldn't intsall

I took apart my computer, put this thing in it, put it all back together, ran the program that said the drivers were installed. But, the drivers didn't install, and I never could get them to install.

Good Tuner Card

This card works as advertised. I found the Windows Media part was not worth the effort. The software that comes with the card works very well and provides everything I need.

Hauppauge 1213 WinTV HVR2250

A great TV tuner, recording a good quality. My cable company provided me with a box (digital to analog converter, I believe) since some of my channels are disappearing without this box as they go to digital broadcasting. I was hoping that this tv tuner would make the box unnecessary, but this wasn't the case. It still doesn't access these missing channels without the box. Luckily, the IR Blaster controls this box. Overall I am pleased with the purchase.
