Description
WinTV-DCR-2650 is a cable TV box which, unlike a cable TV box you might get from your cable TV company and which connects to a TV set, uses Windows Media Center to watch and record your favorite TV programs. WinTV-DCR-2650 has two cable TV tuners built-in, so with Windows Media Center you can record two programs at the same time, or you can watch one program while recording another.Like a normal cable box, the WinTV-DCR-2650 allows you to watch and record all of the cable TV programs you subscribe to. This includes premium channels such as HBO and ESPN. The only cable TV programs you cannot watch with the WinTV-DCR-2650 are Pay-per-View and Video on Demand programs.

Good price but buggy
3 Star Review   By member Consumer777 - Dec 11, 2012   

Strengths: Price

Weakness: frequently stops recording with Windows 7 Media center and a cisco 1520 TA.

Trying to run a Windows 7 media center PVR based on this cablecard tuner is a bit like gambling. Sometimes you have a good success streak, and then you run into a streak where it fails, typically with a Windows 7 reported error of " recording stopped for use by another component". That requires you to yank and insert the usb connections to both the 2650 and the TA. If my rebate comes through I got a good price and acceptable value. Sadly, I haven't seen any other HTPC cablecard tuners that have better reviews.
