So I want to start downloading and saving HD content from my DVR to my computer so I can save it, burn it, and grab some frames (Much like I’ve seen on this site).
I’ve been using USB Pinnacle to do it in analog but the quality sucks. Any recommendations as to a good card to get? and software? I’ve checked out Hauppauge Colossus PCI Express, Avertv HD DVR and Blackmagic but I'm unclear as to the better one or if I'm even in the right ballpark.
My system is: Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.00GHz (2 CPUs) Memory: 4096MB RAM, 3T of storage, USB 3.0. Display Devices: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 I have an open PCI and AGP slot I can use. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
I second that. That is what I use. I bought mine because I was considering a PVR receiver for my satellite system. The Hauppage does a fantastic job. And it is quite a bit cheaper than most satellite specific PVR receivers.
Hauppauge 1212 HD-PVR High Definition Personal Video Recorder is the world's first high-definition video recorder for making real-time H.264 compressed recordings at resolutions up to 1080i. And I am fully satisfied with the service which it provides.
