Hauppauge Colossus HD Video Recorder PCI Express Card

Posted by tomwiles at 8:07 PM on January 21, 2011

Ken Plotkin, the CEO of Hauppage (www.hauppauge.com), describes the Colossus HD H.264 Video Recorder PCI Express card for the PC. The Colossus card is designed to record high definition video from sources such as an X-Box 360, Playstation 3, as well as high definition video coming from a cable TV or satellite box via component video outputs on those devices, thus avoiding the DRM problem. The Colossus HD Video Recorder retails for $169 dollars, available in the first week in February 2011. According to Plotkin, the Colossus is the only recorder solution available that can record high definition video from component video outputs.

GNC-2011-01-14 #639 Back in the Saddle

Posted by geeknews at 1:36 AM on January 14, 2011

It is fantastic to be back doing the show after a two week hiatus for CES and all of the other adventures I have been on. This one is action packed and I have some major soap box time about Google and their H.264 abandonment announcement and who consumers in general are going to suffer over this format war. Lots to share this is a fast paced one strap in tight!

GNC-2010-08-26 #605 Hotel Broadband SUCKS!

Posted by geeknews at 7:27 PM on August 26, 2010

Hotels in Large part do not care about their guest and over the past couple of years bandwidth has continued to decline at every place I stay it is quite discouraging. Start complaining loudly where ever you stay and hopefully we can reverse the trend. Headed for Honolulu on Saturday ready for a few days at home.
