Cable card


Cable card

I just read about Hauppauge WinTV-DCR-2650 and I would like to know if U-Verse gives/sales a cable card.

You can find more info at http://news.cnet.com/8301-13845_3-20102522-58/get-a-dual-tuner-cablecard-adapter-for-$127/?tag=nl.e7...


I called technical service and they don't know what I'm talking about. One reason that I pasted the article.

Could someone tell me if they have a card and how to get one?

Or how can you record some programs on computer and not on DVR. I want to save some wood working programs (ch 20) and not have to delete them or watch them in the house and not in my workshop.


Thank you very much for your time. Hope I find an answer before the new season starts.

Re: Cable card

What is the make/model of the video connection to the PC that you bought?


What type of connection did you use from the STB to the video input to thePC? If you used composite video (yellow jack) & red/white jacks for sound you may have a bad connection on the sound. Try disconnecting your cables then reconnect - verify you have everything connected correctly and firmly. It is easy to get connections crossed up.


If it is the connections, you would have a problem while watching something live.


It is unlikely it is the DVR process. You can check that by playing another show.


It could be a one time glitch on the episode. Check additional episodes.

Some cables were not in the right place.
