    Hi All,

    Gotta replace my old box and will be reinstalling my Hauppage video capture card. Can I ASSume that the actual "capture" of video has nothing at all to do with the new box's (crappy Intel 4400) built-in video chip? With the old box's (even crappier built-in video) I noticed some slow and/or jittery playback on 1080i captures. Had no way to try these caps on a better box, but ASSumed it's in the playback and not the capture...

    You will still need to meet certain system requirements for the capture card to work properly. Usually everything has minimum necessary requirements.

    What is the Hauppage DVR model number?

    It's a Colossus 1312 card with multiple output formats (was previously was forced into using component input). Worked fine in my 7 yo HP mini-tower (2 gigs/ dual core, Win7x32) that just failed, so the new box coming should handle it even better with 4 gigs RAM, i3-4130 processor, and Win7x64. I recently added a $25 inline splitter that allows HDMI to be recorded and it seemed jerky on playback. Hopefully it was the cheesy MOBO video on playback and not the actual capture...
