I posted this topic in the 'Video Card' section, but nobody responded. :(

So I thought I'd post it here. Has anyone used either of these cards or currently owns one? I'm interested in some feedback as to the advantages and disadvantages with either one. I appreciate the replies, thanks in advance.

Come on, answer me. Someone has to have atleast owned or currently owns one of these two cards.

No, but I did read a review on them both competing with ATI's Theater 550 Pro, and the Win PVR 350 looked to be one of the best IMO.

I would go for the 350 or the Theater 550 Pro ;)

I had the Theatre 550Pro.. don't get me wrong, the 'hardware' was excellent, but the 'software' was total garbage. I think I might go with the 350 this time around.

I had the Hauppauge 250 for a bit. Sold it to my boss because I never used it. I had a rough time at first but once all the patches and updates were installed, it worked very well. While trying to figure out some problems, I came across a good site, http://www.videohelp.com/ I choose Hauppauge because I was using a Nvidia video card and wasn't sure if the ATI capture cards would conflict. You will have to get a stereo y adapter in order to get stereo sound unless you like mono. Never used the remote or TV viewing option, just capturing video from my VCR.

Thanks for the information. But why a stereo y-adapter, aren't there left and right RCA jacks on the back of the card? I'm just wondering, unless this is some sort of glitch.

Oh nevermind.. I was confusing that model with another model. There's a line-in mini jack on the back of the card.. it's ok, I understand now.
