You bet the Hauppauge Win TV Pvr USB 2.0 is simply the best. I am a Noob to analog/digital conversion which was the reason I purchased this unit and I installed the TV tuner per the instructions and had no problems.
Watched a little tv to insure that it is working OK and then did a conversion of a 45 minute vhs tape and I was extremely impressed.
My external Burner did a super job with the recommended Media that I was advised to use from the phone support for BenQ and the end result DVD that I burned in ROM was excellent.
I can't say enough about this unit, now I am going to do the D/L for the Movie Maker 3.0 SE proggy that comes with the Hauppauge so that I can convert a 180 minute vhs to a DVD9.
This unit does the job for me and it is not complex for a Noob
Cheers, (As well in Canada the price of the unit has dropped from $200 to $150 and one is certainly getting the quality for the $ paid!!!
