I am using the WinTV- hvr-1950 connected to a Directv sat box connected using the S-Video and Audio cables. The computer I am using is a Hewlett-Packard HPE-350t running Windows 7 64 bit processor. I had no problem in installing the device, loading the software and configuring the WinTV. I found three things that I don't like about the operation of the device. To select FM Radio stations you have to right click on the TV screen and select an FM channel. It would be nice to have a better way of opeating the Radio part of this device, similar to the way older models worked. It takes way too long to change channels on the TV. The delay is approximately 10 seconds after pushing the button for the TV to respond. The Snapshot feature doesn't work with either JPG or BMP selected. It actually saves the file, but the file won't open to any device I have for reading those type files. Overall I am satisfied with the device. I have been using WinTV devices both internal and USB devices since 1995 and have had no real serious problems with them. An upgraded software package for this device would make it a more usable device.

I bought this product in order to tape television shows on my laptop. I had a couple questions and called the Hauppauge help desk 5 times and was put on indefinite hold. I e-mailed them and they answered asking specifications of the computer. I responded and they never answered. I was hopeful with Hauppauge but could not get answers.

I needed shows on a portable hard drive to take on camping trip where there is no reception, this records the shows and makes them portable

I bought this because there are no other good options for dvr's. The bad! It froze up my computer, and then crashed my computer when I was trying to tune my local stations from comcast, but after I got them tuned I have had no problems. By the way, I have great memory and alright speed on my computer. It must be rebooted sometimes to get stations tuned. Sometimes the remote does not work, and other times you cannot even skip forward and back manually. The picture is jumpy most of the time, but that might be better if I had a faster computer chip (my computer has a AMD Athlon II). The good, works good 30% of the time, and it gets me by for now. Hopefully, one of these days, someone will come up with a dvr that actually works like its suppose to.
