I bought this card back when it was on sale, but have not used it yet. I could not get any OTA-HD stations. I will be moving to Atlanta next week and should be able to pull the stations in. I have some questions now.


1) Do I have to have special software to play back what I have recorded to my hard drive?


2) How does the quality of the recording compare to the original?


3) Does TitanTV work OK with the MyHD?


4) Should I go ahead and download the latest software?


5) Are there any tweaks or extras I need to get to make this card work to get the best quality?


Thanks,


Raymond

1. No. Just use the MyHD software

2. It is EXACTLY the same.

3. Works great for me, I think most people are satisfied.

4. Yes, get the 1.6 drivers from Digital Connection.

5. Not that I know of.


One other note, don't use Hyperthreading because it is incompatible with the MyHD cards. This may be fixed but I haven't been paying attention.

__________No, MyHD plays back just fine.


2) How does the quality of the recording compare to the original?


_________Exact copy since you capture the transport stream.


3) Does TitanTV work OK with the MyHD?


___________Yes. In fact I now use the offline guide version & like it very much.


4) Should I go ahead and download the latest software?


____________Yes. The app and drivers have improved over time.


5) Are there any tweaks or extras I need to get to make this card work to get the best quality?


___________A good UHF antenna with a UHF pre-amp.


Thanks,

Karnis,

What UHF pre-amp are you using?

After recording a show, if you wish to edit the original recording (remove comercials, or inapropriate material) you can use HDTVtoMPEG2 v1.09.

No need to convert it to MPEG2, unless you want to. Set output as TS and you can play back using the MyHD application with the original HD resolution.


There is a newer version, but I couldn't get v1.10 to work.
