I'm sure the HD PVR 1+2 come with their own software

I have been using the 2250 card for a couple of years, but never with WMC. Have always used Wintv7. To install with WMC just install drivers. Cannot tell you how well it works but with Wintv7 it works well so far. Best is to go to their site and read info, it is all in the support section.

I use it with WMC and just installed the drivers. No other software is needed. Follow the instruction that come with the card.

would it cause any conflict if I install the Win TV software along with WMC that is already in use?

I think you can run them individually, just not at the same time. Each one will want to configure the card so unless the settings are compatible with the other, you may have a problem. WinTV has more configuring options at greater detail while WMC does most of the configuration automatically.

There's certainly no reason at all to use WinTV with the HVR-2250.

WMC is all you need to use, assuming you are not using S-video input to the card. WMC does not support line-input such as S-video, but only tuner input.

I have an HVR-2250 (for OTA/ATSC) along with a Ceton InfiniTV (for cable) and have been using WMC and Windows 7 for more almost 4 years now. The 2-tuner Hauppauge card replaced a 1-tuner ATI TV Wonder 650PCI card several years ago. Never thought to use anything but WMC. I only installed the Hauppauge drivers, but not WinTV.

Windows Media Center saves the programming as wtv while Win-tv saves it as ts (I think that is what I read). Would it make it easier to burn to dvd or blu ray using Win-tv? Ultimately, I would like to create a blu ray disc of these recordings complete with the 5.1 dolby sound track that can be played on a stand alone blu ray player.

If you buy a wonderful software product like VideoReDo TV Suite, you can handle all of these formats as input... including WTV directly as well as TS or TP (which came from BeyondTV) or MPG or anything as a wrapper over the underlying MPEG-2 codec used for HDTV.

Frame-accurate editing, ability to produce output again in any form you want... and NOT RE-COMPRESSED if it's not needed (this is called "fast frame-copy"). Of course there might be a need to decode/encode a few frames at the start and finish of your edit depending on your edit and the "scenes" you're putting together if any, but 99.999% would be direct "frame copy" un-recompressed true original bit-perfect HDTV quality.

And the original DD5.1 audio stream is also retained in the edited output.

I believe VideoReDo can burn to DVD, but I'm not sure about BluRay. Perhaps, but I don't have firsthand knowledge or experience here.

I myself use multiAVCHD to "author" my own BluRay output, and it accepts the MPG edited clips (with MPEG-2 inside) from HDTV out of VideoRedo directly and again does NOT RE-COMPRESS. So while the titling and chaptering from multiAVCHD is 1080p, the actual content can be the true original bit-perfect 720p or 1080i edited clips, and the BluRay will reflect that... with no "tampering" or re-compression done by multiAVCHD for the content itself. Again, the original DD5.1 audio stream in the HDTV clips is also retained bit-perfect as-is in the BluRay output.

Obviously you can use whatever you want to produce your BluRay outputs. But the clip editing really should be done using VideoRedo. It's the best.

BluRay disc output from multiAVCHD is playable on any player which accepts "home burned" onto blank BluRay media (or even BDMV output format burned onto DVD+/-R blank media, to save money for shorter programs that can fit on a DVD blank). Certainly my Oppo players support playback of BluRay's (or BDMV on DVD) produced by multiAVCHD (and burned using IMGBurn).

Unless there's been a recent change, WinTV won't burn a BD disc nor will WMC. How you record it will depend on the software you purchased to edit videos and burn BDs. "They" don't make it easy for you to record TV and burn it to BDs unless it's played on the same PC. It's illegal otherwise.

Dsperber gave a much better option. We must have been typing at the same time.
