    My ATI tv tuner card could not pick up the cable channels after 140. Does the 2250 TV card pickup a cable channel 440? NHL Center Ice is broadcast on cable on that channel here. Thanks.

    • I don’t have any channels that go that high, so I have not tested it.

    • I currently have my Xbox360 hooked up to my media center and the Audio and Video are always been in Sync with each other. However, there is a delay in the audio and video when compared to regular cable, but I think that is because it has to be processed by the computer.

      I don’t have any experience hooking up a PS3 or Wii. I would be interested in the process if you do it.

    Hi!

    I just bought and installed the Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 PCI Express. The video is very poor(looks like vhs). I don’t know if I have to configure something else. What encoder are you using??

    Do your video look like a DVD quality???

    Please help

    TRhank You!

    • It depends on the quality of the signal you are feeding the 2250. Standard “analog” cable is crap and will never be as good as a DVD. However, my cable provider also has a few HD channels and these look awesome, better than DVD. To test this just plug the cable directly into your TV. If the signal looks better, then you may have a problem with the card. If this is the case I would call Hauppauge or try updating your drivers.
