Recording HD from Satellite Or Cable - No Problem Anymore!

For some time we have wanted some method for getting HD content out of our satellite or cable DVRs to be recorded on a computer but there has been no equipment available. Well, no more. Hauppauge has come out with its HD PVR Model 1212. Product Description:
The Hauppauge 1212 HD-PVR High Definition Personal Video Recorder is the world’s first high-definition video recorder for making real-time H.264 compressed recordings at resolutions up to 1080i. With the HD-PVR, you can schedule and automatically record your favorite shows in high definition directly from cable TV and satellite set top boxes. As an added feature, the HD-PVR also includes S-Video inputs so you can convert all your old home video tapes into Blu-ray DVD recordings.

High-Definition Quality Recordings on Your Schedule
At long last, a personal video recorder, or PVR, that offers high quality recordings of high-definition television shows. Now you can start building a personal archive of your favorite high definition TV programs without losing the broadcast quality.

At the heart of the HD-PVR is an H.264 high-definition encoder that’s built-in for high-performance, high-quality TV recordings at up to 1080i resolution, 720p or 1080i. The box includes a component video input for use with most high-definition cable TV and satellite TV receivers, as well as optical or stereo audio inputs. (Audio is recorded using AAC of Dolby Digital.)

The HD-PVR records in the AVCHD format, which can be used to burn Blu-ray DVD discs. Two hours of high-definition recordings, recorded at 5 Mbits/sec, can be burnt onto a standard 4.7 GB DVD-R or DVD-RW disk for playback on any Blu-ray DVD player. (You have the option of recording at datarates from 1 Mbs to 13.5Mbs, constant and variable bit rate.)

The recorder also includes Hauppage’s WinTV scheduler that lets you schedule your TV recordings, and a built-in IR blaster that automatically changes TV channels for your scheduled recordings. The included remote control lets you change the stations in your set-up box. And for even greater convenience and performance, the HD-PVR features an audio / video component video loop so you can record and watch your television at the same time.

Convert Your Home Videos to Blu-ray DVDs
If you’ve been wondering what to do with all your home videos, the HD-PVR has the answer. Thanks to the included standard definition composite and S-Video inputs, you can plug your VCR directly into the box and record your old home video tapes into an AVCHD format, which you can then burn onto a DVD for playback on your Blu-ray DVD player with the appropriate computer burner.

Also included with the HD-PVR is Arcsoft’s “TotalMedia Theater,” a video player that lets you play back your TV recordings to your PC screen, and “MediaConverter” to convert your H.264 HD recordings onto other formats.

The HD-PVR measures a scant 7.8 x 6.8 x 2.8 inches, so it will fit snugly in your home theater set up.
