wasn’t surprised by the 64-bit news, but I’m shocked at the single tuner.
I’m not exactly sure if the single tuner support is with the bundled
application that they are shipping or if it will also apply to SageTV and
BeyondTV. If it does apply to all software, this product has lost all of
its value. Maybe SnapStream can
add to this?
Brent posted that the drivers are
supposed to support multiple tuners, so most likely it is just Hauppauge’s
bundled software that will only support the single tuner.
Remote says Hauppauge has confirmed multi-tuner support for “all major
software packages such as BeyondTV, SageTV, MythTV and Vista Media Center.”
they have said it supports multiple tuners at the driver level, that it only
supports one tuner per system, and they it will work with all major software
packages. Sorry Hauppauge, I don’t believe your reps anymore. With
a product of this value they need to put together a Q&A and clearly states
who will be providing support, for what applications, and when. Saying
flat out that it support Vista Media Center is also very misleading.
There is no possible way for them to support it until the next Media Center
release. Their HD-PVR ships next week, at this point they really need to
get their story straight.
