To install:
  • Click the download button and Save Hauppauge Capture to your PC (do not select 'Run')
  • Once Hauppauge Capture is downloaded, run the Hauppauge Capture installation
  • After installation, you will be asked to reboot your PC. Please reboot.
  • While rebooting your PC, if you have an HD PVR 2, remove the power plug from the back of the HD PVR 2 for a few seconds and then plug it back in. This resets the HD PVR 2.
  • Once your PC is rebooted, you will see the Hauppauge Capture icon on your Windows desktop. Run it. No other setup is needed.
New features in this version:
  • StreamEez support for the Rocket: stream with Twitch and YouTube with the HD PVR Rocket
  • Record hotkey: Alt and the space bar starts and stops recording
  • Multi-track audio recording updates

    Each of your audio sources will now be on a separate track, and can be edited in Sony Vegas. To check out the multi-track audio, we suggest you open your recording in the VLC media player and click on Audio -> Audio track and you can listen to track 1 (game), track 2 (microphone) or track 3 (PC audio).

  • Reduced PC requirements for recording and playback
  • Bugs fixed in this version:
