Haupauge HVR-1800 TV Tuner Card

Introduction:

The notion of a personal Home Theater PC (HTPC) is becoming more prevalent lately. Many ideas can go into the planning of an HTPC. Will it be able to stream video across the network? Will it act as a central media hub? Will it be able to view online videos? The most important question being, will it be able to record and playback TV? This is where Hauppauge shines. Hauppauge has been producing quality TV tuner cards for quite some time now. In the Linux community, their cards are near synonymous with MythTV. So does their latest addition, the  WinTV-HVR-1800, have the goods to make it into your next HTPC build? Read on, and we’ll tell you.

  1. Wow, this is the most worthless review ever. No commentary on picture quality, tuner quality, bundled software, etc. You basically said “it’s a TV tuner, it fits in a PCI-E x1 slot, and it comes in a box.”

  2. This is not a review. It’s about half the pages of an installation manual. Worthless. I won’t read anything at techwarelabs again unless I need a good laugh.
