Supports the following TV formats: NTSC Analog TV, ATSC Digital TV and Clear QAM Digital Cable TV:

  • NTSC is the analog cable TV standard for North America.
  • ATSC is the over-the-air digital HDTV standard for North America and typically requires an antenna for reception.
  • Clear QAM digital cable allows users to watch unencrypted HDTV stations from their cable TV provider without a set-top box.
  • Analog TV recordings typically consume 1.5GB of disk space per hour. High Definition TV recordings typically consume 5GB of disk space per hour.

Notes:

  • Clear QAM digital cable TV channels are not available on all cable networks. For more information, contact your cable TV provider.
  • To watch clear QAM channels, you should use either the Hauppauge WinTV v7 or v8 application or Windows Media Center from Windows 7.
  • For analog cable TV reception, you need an analog cable TV connection. If you have a digital cable set-top box or a satellite box, the WinTV-HVR-1955 can connect via either Composite or S-Video inputs. Channel changing will be done using the IR Blaster.
  • For ATSC over-the-air digital TV reception, a high-gain antenna is recommended. To check the ATSC TV broadcasts in your area, go to TitanTV.com and enter your postal code. Note: depending on the strength of your antenna, you might not be able to receive all broadcasts listed at TitanTV.
  • To use the WinTV-HVR-1955 for TV with the Windows Media Center application, a Media Center certified DVD or MPEG-2 software decoder should be standard in your Media Center PC. If you are building a Media Center PC, check Microsoft’s website for a list of Media Center certified DVD decoders. The Windows Media Center application is included with Windows XP Media Center, Windows Vista Ultimate, and Windows Vista Home Premium editions only. Note: the enclosed remote control is not MCE certified and does not replace the Media Center remote control.
  • ATSC TV recordings are not 100% compatible with DVD, and therefore you cannot burn them directly to a DVD.
  • For use with Windows 8, 1 and Vista, the WinTV-HVR-1950 can be used with Microsoft’s Media Center application. Not all included applications on the enclosed installation CD are currently certified for use with Windows Vista.
