  Great piece of gear, but make sure its in stock before order

| | See all JamieMulholland's reviews (1)

PVR is brilliant piece of kit. However when i ordered it i was unaware it wasnt in stock as it was never stated to me. So i had to wait 2 weeks before it was in stock which was pretty annoying, but as soon as it came in stock, it was packed and posted to my door within 4 days..and im very pleased with play.com's delivery as i was a first time buyer.

  Fantastic for both MAC and PC

Does exactly what it says, you will need a huge external hard drive to get the most out of this.

I use this mainly on mac, the best software to use isnt eyetv its quite expensive if you havent a copy already.

However i highly recommend HDPVRCapture its made by one of the developers of the hauppauge itself. works perfectly and adjustable to your recording needs.

  HD PVR is great

Very fast delivery from play.com even when it said it was out of stock which was fantastic. The product is of a high standard and everything you need is provided (cables etc). There was only one problem, the remote control is not capatable with the software provided but still works great, i use it with windows media centre. If your a serious gamer who wants to have HD quality recordings then i would recommend this product to you.

  Works a treat with my Macbook Pro

| | See all iGlaswegian's reviews (3)

Ordered from Play when it said "ships within 4-5 days". Got slightly worried as the same night it changed to "1-2 week delivery". Luckily, it did ship indeed within the original time frame (4-5 days). My only gripe with Play is that they didn't provide any tracking code for the HD PVR. I've just spent 170 quid for this unit, the least you can do is send a tracking code.

Installation was easy'ish - once connected, it works a treat. Hauppauge should include software for the Mac, seen as the Apple platform is increasing in market share rather quickly. Its also kinda lame that you've got to PURCHASE Mac software (Eye TV 3) in order to run this with a Mac. If your a Windows user, you've got software included in the package. But if your a Mac user, your going to have to shell out another 40-50 quid for Mac software - Eye TV is the best. Its very user friendly, advanced options and again its made my a sole Mac company who know what they're doing.

In terms of the HD PVR unit - the unit is surprisingly LIGHT. The IR receiver for the remote control could have been built into the actual unit rather than have to glue on the IR receiver.

  Excellent product, Play.com proved themselves here

| | See all iMarkHD's reviews (1)

I ordered mine on a saturday afternoon and was told it would take 1-2 weeks before it was dispatched as they needed to order it in, So I assumed it would arrive with me in about 3 weeks. I ordered on the saturday, on the wednesday afternoon they had recieved their stock and were "packing" it, Thursday morning at 9.30am it was dispatced, I would of loved it to arrive on the saturday but it didn't. Over all though great product with amazing quality recordings and Play.com are ahead of their game when it comes to dispatching. If only there was an option to upgrade postage to Next day signed for. 5*

  A 'must have' for all satellite viewers

| | See all dc1968uk's reviews (1)

If you have Sky HD (and are lucky enough to have an older set-top box with the component out connections), then this is an absolute must! Using third party software you can link the HD PVR directly into Windows 7 Media Centre thus allowing full live Sky tv viewing and recording (including channel changing) from inside MCE. You can also easily transfer your previously recorded programs from your Sky HD box to your PC. The bundled software gives you the option of choosing one of three video formats to record too, and you can always convert afterwards using extra video editing software should you want. Trust me, this is worth every penny!

  Just what I needed

For ages I was trying to find something to record in the UK. This works brilliantly and the quality is great. Only thing I have to complain about is the strange formats it produces; alright so it comes with a MediaConverter but you have to pay to activate that software! Which is crazy. But everything else is great.

5/5
