About the HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition Plus

Record video game play in HD on your PC or Mac

HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition Plus records high definition game play video from a gaming PC, Sony® PlayStation®3 or PS4, the new Microsoft® Xbox® One or the Xbox 360 onto your Windows laptop or desktop PC. Make video recordings of your best game play in HD and upload to YouTube and share them with other gamers online. Or make a high definition movie of your game play to share with your friends or use it to discuss tactics with your clan members! The HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition Plus now has Mac support.

HD PVR 2 GE Plus now comes with a free copy of the HDPVRCapture application, so you can record your game play on your Mac and edit your recordings in iMovie.

Add game commentary while you record or stream!

Hauppauge Capture, the simple to use application for recording, editing, uploading and streaming your game play, has a built-in audio mixer. Add your game commentary while you record or while you stream. And add audio from your PC (music or Skype audio can be recorded) and even put each audio source on separate tracks for easier editing in Sony Vegas or Pinnacle Studio. The Hauppauge Capture program has all the features you need for making awesome game play recordings and streams!

With HDMI and Component Video in plus no-delay HDMI video passthrough

HD PVR 2 comes with HDMI in and out to make it easier to connect to your Xbox 360 and your HD TV set. For the PS3, HD PVR 2 comes with a PS3 Component Video gaming cable, while still using the HDMI out for no-delay passthrough to your HD TV set!

New! Now with a Record button, so you can start and stop your video recordings directly from the HD PVR 2

HD PVR 2 has a top mounted record button. Hit the record button and ShowBiz opens on your PC and starts recording. Hit the record button again and ShowBiz will stop recording. This makes recording your video gameplay super easy!

Record your PC gameplay, with no delay and no slowdown of your PC!

HD PVR 2 can be connected to the HDMI output of your PC to record your gameplay. With our "no delay passthrough", you can play your game on a TV monitor while recording. And the recording will not slow down your PC since the encoding is done within HD PVR 2!

Amazing audio and video quality

HD PVR 2 uses a pro-quality H.264 video encoder, the same video recorder which is used in TV studios. HD PVR 2 records using amazing H.264 compression at HD resolutions up to 1080p30. HD PVR 2's H.264 recording format is used by Blu-ray disks and exceeds other compression standards in video quality, providing a crisp image with amazing digital sound. And H.264 uses 1/3 the disk space compared with the popular MPEG-2 format.

Watch recordings of your best game play on your PC monitor or HD TV set

Once your recordings are on your PC hard disk, you can play them back directly on your computer screen using the included ShowBiz application. You can also transfer the recordings over your home network to your PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, or other high definition media player.

Play while you record with our no-delay HDMI video pass through!

HD PVR 2 comes with real-time video pass through, so you can watch your game play on your HD TV while recording your game on your PCs disk drive. Simply connect HD PVR 2 in between your game console and your HD TV set (HDMI in and out plus Component Video cables included).
