Almost five years after the introduction of the very first consumer-priced HD capture device, the HD PVR, Hauppauge has introduced the HD PVR 2 model 1512. Joining the new HD PVR 2 GE Plus, released late last year and geared towards gamers, the HD PVR 2 is focused on home media users who want to record broadcast TV. It includes an IR blaster to control the set-top box it is connected to and bundled with WinTV v7.2 software. It is also compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 8 Media Center. You can record component or HDMI (unprotected) sources, up to 1080p30, and the video and audio are stored as h.264 and 5.1 surround sound. The new unit will be available on February 1st, but the press release after the break doesn't include the price. The HD PVR 2 GE Plus is available via online retailers now for $150, so it's probably safe to assume the HD PVR 2 model 1512 will be around the same.
