“For years, I have been trying to find a HD recorder that can not only record any Cable/Satellite show, but also one that would allow me to record my dad’s old VCR movies onto the computer so that we can optimize them to today’s standards. I am always on the lookout to try new things, to review the unique or unusual devices that can or will make our lives a whole lot easier.The Hauppauge HD-PVR is such a device that can make our daily movie/show watching lives a lot easier.”

At $200 the Hauppauge HD PVR High Definition Personal Video Recorder is a small box that connects to any video source and records it. To test that claim Bjorn3D tried recording from their cable set top box, an Xbox 360 game, a Xbox game, satellite television, Blu-Ray movies in 1080i, a SD DVD movie, and even a movie off of a VCR. All were completely sucessful, the HD PVR did not have a problem recording from any of those sources. The only qualm that Bjorn3D had was the lack of HDMI input.
