Hauppauge Digital adds to HD PVR 2 line with two new units
<a href="http://macnn.com/rd/277009==http://www.hauppage.com" rel='nofollow'>Hauppauge Digital</a>, a developer and manufacturer of TV tuners and HD video recorders, has launched two new models in its line of high-definition video recorders. One model, the HD PVR 2 Model 1512, is geared toward home media enthusiasts; the HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition Plus, on the other hand, is designed for advanced gamers. Both units will be available at retail in February, and as yet no pricing has been announced.<br />
<br />
The HD PVR 2 model 1512 allows users to create a library of favorite cable TV or satellite TV programs in HD. A built-in high definition video recorder plus an IR remote simplifies channel changing on a set-top box. The unit is connected to both a set-top box with supplied component video cables and to a PC through a USB 2.0 connection, using the PC's disk drive for storing the recordings. With the supplied Hauppauge WinTV v7.2 application, the HD PVR 2 can be programmed to change the channels on the set top box using the IR remote at a designated time. HD PVR 2 recordings are also Windows Media Center-compatible in both Windows 7 and Windows 8.

The new model for advanced gamers is the HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition Plus. Designed to be used with the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, or PC game systems where SPDIF and surround sound audio are engaged, the HD PVR 2 GE Plus can record the surround sound audio along with the game play in HD. For gamers who use home theater A/V systems, the HD PVR Gaming Edition Plus also has full surround sound audio pass-through.

Bundled with the unit is Hauppauge's StreamEez video streaming application, which allows game play to be streamed via Justin.TV and U-Stream. <em>Electronista</em> reviewed the previous version of the HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/276986==http://www.electronista.com/reviews/hauppauge-hd-pvr-2-gaming-edition.html" rel='nofollow'>in October</a>.
