Hauppauge Launches New WinTV-HVR-2255

Hauppauge has just announced a new TV tuner PCIE card which includes two TV tuners and an FM radio receiver that works with Windows XP all the way up to 8.1 with a price tag of $109. The card is half-height so it would be great for an HTPC and I like the fact that it has an FM radio in it.

Hauppauge Computer Works, Inc., the leading developer and manufacturer TV receivers for PCs, announced today the availability of the new WinTV-HVR-2255. This half height, PCI Express, TV tuner has dual NTSC/ATSC/QAM receivers built-in and is a performance enhancement to their popular dual tuner TV receiver, the WinTV-HVR-2250.

The WinTV-HVR-2255 is designed for both end users and system builders who are looking for a dual tuner TV receiver, 1/2 height internal TV tuner board with support for all of the standard TV formats used in North America: ATSC over-the-air HD TV, clear QAM digital cable TV, NTSC analog TV and baseband video. With the dual built-in hardware MPEG-2 encoders, the WinTV-HVR-2255 will convert NTSC and baseband video into high quality MPEG-2 video. And the WinTV-HVR-2255 includes a new single channel FM radio receiver.

The WinTV-HVR-2255 has several improvements over the previous model. It includes the latest generation ATSC demodulator, with improved sensitivity for receiving over-the-air TV broadcasts. For those who live in a fringe area, the improved sensitivity will allow you to receive more over-the-air ATSC TV channels, with fewer digital TV artifacts.

Hauppauge has released a new version of the WinTV v7 application for use with the WinTV-HVR-2255. It provides "watch one channel while recording another", plus offers "picture-in-picture" using both TV tuners. In addition, the WinTV-HVR-2255 can be used with Windows Media Center as a dual tuner, multi-format TV receiver.

Pricing
The WinTV-HVR-2255 with the WinTV v7 application and a Windows Media Center remote control kit will have a list price of $129. The WinTV-HVR-2255 board only with drivers for Windows 8 and 8.1, Windows 7 and Windows XP will sell for $109.
