    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 4.1 out of 5★ by 11reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Hauppauge quality, Walmart delivery, both AAAA+ This is my 3rd 2250 tv tuner card, all in the same HTPC, along with 2 USB Pinnacle Tuners (now Hauppauge). Yes, that's a total of 8 HD tuners in one machine. They have all been near perfect for recording over the air HDTV. I'm about 70 miles (deep fringe) from the towers and these all have a signal strength rating in Beyond TV4 of 96-98% with no degradation at all.There are 3 versions of this product, this oem version, that is accessory free, one that has a Hauppauge specific remote, and another with a Windows MCE specific remote.Obiously there is a problem with Walmart's discriptions of the oem version, mine came with blaster cable and drivers/software disc, but no remote.It's priced a little high, should be around $110. 10/30/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Very Nice Card This is a very good tv tuner card. It is really the only one I've found that has NTSC/ATSC/ClearQAM and is also Dual Tuner. Also built in M-peg 2 encoders which greatly improves the performance. As previous reviewer mentioned the 1229 does NOT come with a remote or IR blaster. The 1213 comes with the MCE remote. If the page says so it is wrong. Also, it should be $110 not $120. 12/20/2011
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by Missing Items I received this as a gift yesterday and it seemed pretty cool. Sadly, the box was missing the remote, IR Blaster and software required to watch and record on the TV. All those items, according to its Walmart page and the included instructions, were supposed to be included. I took it back to the store and decided to get something else.If you pick this up at a store don't leave the store before you open the box in front of a Walmart employee and confirm that everything is included. If you have it delivered to your home make sure everything is included before you waste your time putting it inside your computer. 01/20/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Performs as advertised. I was looking for this card anyway, and Walmart had a good price and free shipping. The only way to make the card better would be for Hauppauge to step up and make the small investment to deliver quality Linux drivers. 01/20/2014
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by WORKS FOR TV BUT NOT FOR DUBBING OLD VHS TAPES Actually, I credit this card with working very well (Excellent value and meeting expectations) as a double-TV-tuner card when used with Windows Media Center. However, since my primary purpose for this purchase was to copy several old VHS family videos onto our PC as digital files, I am not a happy camper: 1) First, I had to purchase Hauppauge's WinTV software to access the analog video and stereo audio inputs; 2) then, once I got a video tape transferred as a digital file in my PC, when I tried editing the contrast, brightness and sharpness, the audio and video were badly out of sync. So, I plan to return this card to Walmart (and will need to 'eat' Hauppauge's separate, extra-cost WinTV program) unless I find a way to overcome this issue. In the two weeks since I installed this card I have tried numerous times using different configuration options; so far, it's a waste of time and money. 12/01/2012
