New Hauppauge TV card
The new 'WinTV Personal Video Recorder' from Hauppauge is the first TV card to offer MPEG2 hardware compression. The MPEG2 audio/video encoder on the card makes it possible to save the television program in full screen mode on the hard drive.
It is no longer necessary for the user to have an extremely fast PC, as was previously the case with software solutions, but the encoder chip on the card now does all the work. The enclosed program WinTV-Scheduler also enables the user to plan the recording of the program days or weeks in advance. The recording takes place in the background. The software also allows you to create video CDs that can then be played in an external DVD player. The quality of the recordings should correspond to a VHS recording, which, however, in contrast to this never loses quality. Otherwise, the map offers the familiar features from Hauppauge. The card is now available at a price of approx. 650.00.
