    Actually, I would prefer using the Hauppauge HD PVR 2 at work. As a supervisor of a team wherein everybody is working home-based, training them simultaneously can difficult and most of the time annoying. Low internet speeds in my country worsen the situation and skype conferences during the day is really slow. This device could help me record trainings and make them into “webinars” latecomers and others can watch later. That would really be helpful. Well, a bit for gaming when there a nice scene in Mass Effect 3 I would want to record 😀

  • If you get an issue with the Punchtab widget, just press the reload button.

    I have a ps3 and would really like to record some Black Ops 2…. I have gotten some insane clips in the past and am sure there are more to come. Right now I have an easy cap, and i know that might not be the only reason I dont get a huge amount of views, but I know if I had a HD sickness PVR I would be more motivated to keep recording and getting big.

  • Jo Tuason

    We have Xbox and will probably recording most of our Kinect dance games.

  • the giveaway widget never loads. #FAIL!!

    • Did you try clicking the reload button on the widget itself? There should be a reload button that appears, over 1,000 people have entered so far so it is working but I did notice it takes a reload.
      I have so many contests with embedded Punchtab widgets that some are having to be reloaded manually to work.
      I am trying to resolve the problem.

    • Okay, I think I found the problem and it should always load more consistently now.

  • Xbox 360. I want to record some of the Kinect replays

  • Ronald Smith

    I have an assortment of consoles that I’d like to use with this, but it appears only my Xbox 360 would work since the inputs on the device do not support the composite cables, lol. I guess it would be my Xbox 360 then.

    Thanks for this great opportunity!

    • There is an adapter you can purchase, enabling the use of composite cables.

      • Ronald Smith

  • Ayush Gupta

  • I would let my brother in law record walk-throughs for my son for his epic games that I am not skilled enough to play.

  • Yomar Lopez

    My son is an aspring YouTube star so this would be a nice way to support his dream. I just know him and passing fancies.. Shelling out over $200 for a good PVR when he’ll likely lose interest once he sees the work involved.. No thanks. LOL.. Hey, other parents out there know what I’m talking about! I do have my own gaming blogs so, who knows, maybe I’ll “borrow” the PVR from him if I win it. ;o)

    • My own 9 year old wants one of these but I couldn’t shell out for one yet, even though he creates Minecraft and Guild Wars 2 YouTube vids on his channel I want him to show more than a few weeks commitment to it before I would get him it. If I owned one I would use it myself for sure though.

  • Rahul Kumar

    Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition! want to record call of duty 🙂 and widget it superb…

    I have a Wii and would love to record some of the gaming time I spend with my grand-daughter. 🙂

  • annethought

    My son loves to record his games and the PS3 I’m getting him and that PVR that I’ll be winning will be great gifts. 😀

  • bloggers should keep commenting open for fans.

  • Thanx for give away

  • Theresa Reed

    My son has the Xbox 360. As for the games he would record it could all or some off them. Not sure which ones he world record. 🙂

  • My son has all the systems and this would be a great addition for him to have

  • atta

    A Xbox 360 and I’d record MW3 MP games.

  • I would like to win this HD pvr2 giveaway.

  • Would record walkthroughs of various indie games and latest released games on PS3 and 360.

  • Pac

    A custom desktop and I’d record my Left 4 Dead games for next Halloween.

  • I’d primarily use the HD PVR 2 to record Xbox 360 gameplay. I could also use it to record pc content, as my pc has an HDMI output. Haupauge has an adapter for composite input, which would enable recording of older consoles, such as the Super Nintendo. I believe you are mistaken about the sentence directly below the 1st image of the device. I think the button allows you to record without first opening the capture program, but it does need to be connected to the pc.

  • I’d use it to record every game i play on Xbox 360, PS3, or PC. There’s always a crazy moment or bug that would be awesome to record but I never have anything setup to do so.

  • HCL Service Center

    Nice article on website and internet. it is very helpful.
