Even if you struggle setting up the EPG you still can tune & watch LiveTV, even do manual recordings as a proof of concept your tuner works, the antenna signal strength wait, that's another thread! his comment is here
Well, it worked for a few weeks, even though I had laid it on a good heatsink to help cool it. None that I've seen mention where the processing is taking place. I think 2 might be a problem sometimes though.

Similar topic at TechPowerUP and c|net Old analog signal, simple, connect cable directly to tv tuner. The Hauppage gadget did all of the encoding in the USB device itself, which is probably why it was getting so hot.
It was probably 50C or hotter. The latest beta (4.9) supports ClearQAM for Hauppauge cards. I recommend MythTV on *nix or MediaPortal.

I decided to clean up the cabling by just using one box. Any suggestions or advice are appreciated! The Duet cards are half-height cards. I've tested win7 and win8.
After the few weeks, it would shut down after 20 or 30 minutes of use. this content I also use ChannelMaster tuner for straight TV permalinkembedsavegive gold[–]topcat5 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago*(0 children)You didn't say how much money you want to spend. Possibly building a HTPC for a buddy and wanted to look at a TV Tuner. Is this something that not many HTPC systems use?
You will need wired connection between the router and the computer, as well. 6 TV's in the house on FiOS and we only pay $4.99/month to connect them all!!! blueiedgod is offline Quote post #12 of 21 Old 07-24-2014, 02:01 PM Roussi Advanced Member Join Date: Nov 2007 Location: NW USA Posts: 708 Mentioned: 0 Post(s) Tagged: I don't have current experience with the tuners on the market now, but about 3-4 years ago I tried a couple and absolutely HATED the software for them, too. weblink It ran rather hot, but worked.
Has usual connections to link up to video so may be good for sky. However I'm using a mini-tower case so it doesn't matter in my situation. I have been doing a lot of reading on building an HTPC, and have looked at recommendations for components, but I have found it extremely difficult to find information on TV
The HDHR Dual goes on sale quite often and can be found for as low as $60. I've used virtualdub too, but I think you have to get a separate mpeg2 encoder for that. You might be able to get something with OK performance for around that if you get a used card. It looks like it was design for their tuners 12 years ago running under Win98 - it's a complete joke.
Never owned one. The card I got came with a bunch of extra bells and whistles like digital tuner support, FM radio, a couple other inputs, and a MCE compatible remote. mgh24 is offline Quote post #5 of 21 Old 07-24-2014, 05:29 AM captain_video AVS Forum Special Member Join Date: Jan 2002 Location: Ellicott City, MD Posts: 4,349 Mentioned: http://premiumtechblog.com/tv-tuner/what-is-a-tv-tuner.html mgh24 is offline Quote Remove Advertisements Sponsored Links AVS Forum Advertisement post #2 of 21 Old 07-23-2014, 10:15 PM vcrpro3 Advanced Member Join Date: Mar 2003 Location:
It's a bit of an investment to set this up, but once you have it, it won't cost much after that. I just want the user interface to work, though. If that would work, then could watch recorded TV on any set with a Roku, which would be very nice, and inexpensive, which would be nice also. They were only analog, had bad picture quality I thought, and I ended up selling them off.
Apparently Fling is supposed to work with Home Run and Roku, so that may be an option. I'm figuring it ought to have a chance of having a proper thermal design... If I wasn't posting this I would just be on newegg sorting by reviews/ratings and see what I can dig up. I bought this, and then returned it.
