Important message regarding analog TV receivers in North America:

This Hauppauge WinTV product has only an analog broadcast tuner and will require a converter box after February 17, 2009 to receive over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna in the United States because of the transition to digital broadcasting in North America. Analog only TV receivers will continue to work as before with cable TV and satellite TV receivers, plus other video devices such as camcorders and VCRs.
For more information, visit the U.S. FCC website on the digital TV transition at If you have any questions on which Hauppauge models support digital TV reception, please contact us at

Technically speaking: WinTV-GO is a single slot PCI board with bus-mastering technology. It digitizes video using 4:2:2 video sampling. Using the on-board 878 bus master controller, the digitized TV image is sent directly into the memory of your PC’s VGA card without creating overhead for the CPU. So you can work on applications while simultaneously watching TV in a resizable window. WinTV works with any PCI or AGP VGA graphics adapter which supports Windows Direct Draw. WinTV-GO-Plus includes an infra-red transmitter and receiver to receive commands from a remote control and to transmit infra-red signals to set top boxes.
