  1. HDPVR630 to PC Connection

    Shaw Cable HD tuner and HD PVR Discussion
    I am replacing an old Starchoice set top box with an HDPVR. The old cable box had among others a coax output which I use to send a signal to a Hauppauge WinTV card in the kitchen computer. The HDPVR630 has two HDMI outputs - is there a device that I can use to convert HDMI to coax at the the pvr...

    Home Theatre Personal Computer & Media Extenders
    Hey folks, Does anyone have some advice on how to improve reception or eliminate interference in my analog cable feed from Eastlink? I'm getting what looks like cross-channel interference (not ghosting), making the picture a bit snowy or with moving gridlines (if that makes sense). I'm...

    Home Theatre Personal Computer & Media Extenders
    Hi All, I have recently upgraded my Vista 64-bit Media Center to Windows 7 Media Center, also 64-bit. Ever since I changed the OS, my Hauppauge ATSC tuners would at times inexplicably shut off.

  5. Defective Blaster or HDPVR?

    Home Theatre Personal Computer & Media Extenders
    Hi All, I am having a bit of an issue with the IR blaster on my Hauppauge HD-PVR. The jack input on the back of the PVR is 2.5mm (3/32") while the blaster that came with the PVR is a 3.5mm (1/8"). That was a little frustrating, so I just picked up a 3.5mm to 2.5mm adapter and tried that but...

    I will be posting articles today on this new product along with my thoughts. I had the opportunity to view it last week when representatives from Nero came and demonstrated it to me. Needless, to say I was impressed. It essentially was the TIVO interface and the cool thing was it could also...
  10. ATSC Tuners In HDTVs (see Samsung Poll)

    Over-The-Air (OTA) Digital Television
    My TV has a built in ATSC tuner and I'm wondering what the advantages (I'm sure there are a number) to owning a seperate box to handle things. Of course I read that the LG LST-4200A was the choice of champions (in the mini-FAQ) but are there any really compelling features that make it a must...
