    So I just got my new Hauppauge PVR-150 and I'm looking to find the best software I can for it. Right now I'm using a trail version of Beyond TV, its pretty nice but I dont want to really pay the price for it.

    Anyone know of a equvilent PVR/Tuner software that is free? Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Dscaler is my favorite tuner, I don't do much PVR stuff on my PC though so I can't help you there.

    You could try MsDVR 2000

    If you're using Windows Media Encoder 9 then you'll need MsDVR 2005 (as it doesn't work with MsDVR 2000) although it's still in beta at the moment.

    Try GBPVR, does much of what Beyondtv does, except it's free.

    another one I have tried is this: DNTV Live! - It's trial software fully featured but can't record more than 30mins. It's the best I have tried but still inadequate for me.

    If DScaler would work with my tv card I would be stoked but it doesn't unfortunately.
