If you’ve been shopping for a Hauppauge HD-PVR component video recorder in the last few months you may have noticed they’ve been pretty difficult to find. Apparently after a very good black-Friday deal at Amazon, they were backordered and even Hauppauge themselves had few to ship.
Well they are begginning to get caught back up and that’s good news for HTPC shoppers. And the “normal” price seems to be settling much closer to $200 these days as well. Here’s a few places you can find the Hauppauge HD-PVR:
Newegg (affiliate) now has these back in stock. The Hauppauge HD PVR 1212 is $209.99 with $8.50 shipping.
Amazon (affiliate) has the Hauppauge HD-PVR in stock as well although their website says “usually ships within 2-4 weeks”. Hauppauge HD-PVR But the cost is even lower at $200.70 and free shipping!
Bestbuy and Buy.com both show it out of stock so far. I expect we’ll see the Hauppauge device settle around $200 as the new AverMedia device gets closer to release. Speaking of the AverMedia, I had a very interesting (and promising) interview with the folks there and plan to have a few posts about that in the next few days. Stay tuned!
