WinTV-HVR-1600MCE, model 1101, product code 74551

An ATSC PCI card from Hauppauge.

It is currently unsupported under Linux. However, experimental support that enables analog functionality on cetain models exists (see: here).

Instructions for installation can be found at http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_HVR-1600 .

Overview

There are (at least) two slightly different revisions of this dual tuner card.

Model 1178 - features 2 RF inputs (analog, digital) and has product codes (found on the tuner label):

  • 74021


Model 1101- features 3 RF inputs (analog, digital, radio) and has product codes (found on the tuner label):

  • 74551


Under Windows, product codes

  • 74021 & 74041 support QAM
  • 74031 and 74551 do not support QAM


There are a couple of other models mentioned near the bottom of Hauppauge's product page, but it appears their description may suffer from some copy and paste errors. To say the least, the company provided information is far from clear.

This card features:

  • a Maxlinear tuner and the Microtune MT2131 tuner
  • Samsung S5H1409/Conexant CX24227 digital demodulator
