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!

WinTV v8 features:

  • A new user interface for Windows 8 and Windows 10
  • Watch, pause, record and playback TV from Hauppauge TV tuners
  • Closed captions and Parental control (North America)
  • New layout with better controls for live TV pause and playback
  • Integrated TV recording scheduler
  • Multiple tuner support: Picture-in-picture, record multiple TV programs or multiple WinTV windows
  • Logical channel numbers (Europe)
  • Signal strength monitor for digital TV channels
