WinTV v8: The new TV application from Hauppauge
Hear what users say about WinTV v8:
Joe said: I just got my copy of WinTV. Are you kidding me? This program is awesome! As a long time suffering user of MCE, I really wish I had discovered this years ago. It’s the best $12 I have ever spent. Solves so many annoying problems and it even plays all the (hundreds) of over-the-air recorded TV files I had from MCE! I have always been a Hauppauge tuner guy but never had WinTV. You guys rock!
