Works perfect. Time warner was a very easy setup. The cablecard only costs 2.50 a month instead of 20 bucks a month for a HD-DVR. You do need a computer/HTPC for this to work. I'm running into money troubles so I am canceling my cable subscription and thus don't need this anymore. A perfect gizmo for extending your PC capability, the Hauppauge WinTV-DCR-2650 CableCARD receiver allow you to watch and record basic and premium cable TV channels such as HBO and Showtime on computer. Dual tuner design delivers unmatched record flexibility: you can watch one channel while recording another, or record two channels at the same time, so you'll never miss your favorite shows or plays. The content is recorded in original quality - you can enjoy the programs the way it is intended to be. Installation is easy via the USB. * WinTV-DCR-2650 can not function as a standalone, it needs a PC to work. Currently, only a PC with Windows 7 Media Center is compatible with the WinTV-DCR-2650. There are a few applications besides Windows Media Center which will work with the WinTV-DCR-2650. These programs will allow you to watch and record cable TV programs which are marked as "copy freely" by your local cable operator. Most of these programs are your network TV channels including CBS, NBC and Fox. Click on the Third Party apps button above to see an up to date list of these programs.
