I just got an HD box in my bedroom and was looking to get a tuner so I could record shows to the computer (instead of paying the $22 extra a month for the DVR feature, what a rip off!). I know there are a few out there that have apps or software to stream to your iphone but I wanted some opinions. I'd like an HD option so that I can watch it in good resolution via the phone or if I'm in wifi I could use my laptop. I was looking at the HD PVR 2 model 1512 (link: http://www.hauppauge.com/site/products/data_hdpvr2.html because I know the company and like that this is HDMI and not a bunch of cables, just one, less clutter. Does anybody have this and can confirm that it works well? Is there another good option that's cheaper perhaps? And I assume that this one works with streaming live tv because this was under the FAQ page for it: Can I use the HD PVR2 with the Hauppauge WinTV v7 application? Yes. If you use WinTV v7.2 with the HD PVR 2, you can record videos plus use Extend for live streaming. But I'm not 100% sure what the WinTV v7 application is, I'm just guessing it's the live tv streaming app they use.
