Not for HTPC. Limited software suprt

By alstrak Verified Purchaser from Brooklyn, NY on 08/07/2008


Cons:

Lacks Functionality, Limited Compatibility

Describe Yourself:

Hobbyist

Pros:

Professional Quality

Best Uses:

In The Studio, Independent Films, Home Movies

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The device delivers remarkable performance, even support multysystem (PAL, SEKAM & NTSC). This is the only device at the moment that can capture with this level of hardware encoded quality,except for new $115 Blackmagic Design Video Recorder USB Capture Device that I didn't have a chance to test yet although given robust impeccable performance of Black Magic Intensity that I own - I'm sure that is definetely better choice than 1212 HD PVR for capture. 1212 does not work for HTPC because Neither Beyond.TV nor Sage TV nor Vista Media Center nor WinTV(Scheduler only - no one touch record from TV Guide) - support HD input of 1212 at the moment. 1212 comes with rudimentary basic scheduling tool that can swith channel on cable box but fails to record when it wakes PC from Sleep mode. Total Media just drives me mad.For [$] I would expect better bundled software. Now I have to spend another $80 for Beyond TV and even that is not available yet. I've tried Beyond TV with Vista x86, x64 & Windows XP x86 as well with no success. Sage only sees S-video on 1212. For HTPC enthusiasts my advise: Wait. 1212 is not worth it's price today. For capture get Black Magic or $40 Leadtek Winfast PVR1200 that can capture 480i and has very descent bundled software.
