We live in a time of 'sharing'. Sharing experiences through social media is here to stay and with the HD PVR2 you can easily share your game play video's. Read our review below of the Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition Plus recorder
Going to be nice when PS4 comes out and people won't need to buy these expensive gadgets just to share gameplay videos.
Unless the PS4 can render hours of gameplay in 1080p as well as being capable of streaming additionally in HD resolutions, there will always be a market for these devices. I own a Hauppauge myself, and I can't think of a bigger pain in the long-winded ass then having to transfer gigabytes of video files from your console to your PC for editing purposes when you could just press record on your capture device and the files are directly on your PC once you stop. Simple convenience.
Add to this some titles do run in 1080p and there is a solution on the market that can record that resoltion despited HDCP.
"Going to be nice when PS4 comes out and people won't need to buy these expensive gadgets..." Do people actually believe this? Wow.
Pretty sure the whole point of PS4's "Share" button is that players can record live gameplay and upload/share it online. Sure these expensive boxes will probably give you more tools at your disposal and make editing more convenient, but the case remains that you won't NEED one of these to share gameplay videos. Not sure why anyone would disagree with that, its just a fact.
"its just a fact." I'm sure you'll be able to record hours of gameplay directly onto your PS4's HDD... You keep believing that.
had this for a while and it took a bit of work to understand the whole thing. It's not as simple as it seems. But once running it works easy. Editing is great too. Just one major downside: the sound options, I'll give my setup and you can probably relate: HD console - connected to HDPVR2 - connected to HDTV - connected to PC now if the unit is recording you have the software running, now the volume from the TV must come through the HDPVR2 which goes through the PC and since it's recording there is that 3 to 5 seconds of delay. You can't have the sound come through both and you can't mute the sound on the software recording or else you won't have any sound on the file... I think there is some work around this but having the video and sound through HDMI single cable isn't a good set up. a bit of trial and error i guess.
I just muted my computer's audio while recording.
oh you mean like opening the OS system sound at the bottom and muting everything or just the program running? the one game i seem to be having the most problems with the sound is Mass Effect 3. Not sure i keep getting no sound.
Xbox 720 reveal finally !!!!! Yesss live on Ps4, the base for all gamers.....
Will this work on PS4?
