Hauppauge Win-TV tuner cards - features - single versus dual tuners
Posted on 2005-05-09
I’m building a PC as a high-end media center. Could someone summarize the differences and advantages of the various Hauppauge TV tuner cards,
the WinTV-PVR-350 versus the 250, 250MCE, and 150? Are there any opinions as to whether or not the increased cost of the 350 over the 250
or 150 seems justified?
My understanding is that dual tuner cards allow one to watch TV on one TV channel while recording another. Is this true?
Are any of these cards dual channel cards?
Hauppauge seems to set the standard for TV cards. Are any other companies as well regarded and/or give one more bang for the buck?
I will be selling this PC. Being on the safe side, should I stick with Hauppauge or should I consider other company’s cards?
