"My personal review on the Hauppauge HD PVR.
Wondering what it is? Basically its a recording device which allows you to record your ps3, wii, xbox screens and much more all by simply connecting up the HD PVR to your HD TV and to your computer. In my eyes its the best thing to record your gameplay, and it has turned out to be one of my favourite hobbies, as i enjoy going on youtube and making videos. If you don't have a HD TV, and have a standard ..."

The quality is unmatched, upto 1080i HD, unbelievable however ..."

Then with an editing program I had previously, it brings out the true HD inside. I cant stredd enough how goo ..."
