Hauppauge HD PVR2: Day 2, Still crap.

     This is the second day I've struggled with Hauppage's lackluster product.  I was going to return it, but I wanted to give it a 2nd chance.

     All the cables and programs installed AGAIN.  This makes a total of 4 times.  This time I got the Ps3 to work.  BUUUUUUUUT, every minute or so the picture on the TV will go black.  Then back on again a couple of times.  Maybe once every minute it does a repeating cycle of the screen shutting off.  VERY poor job there.  It is quite literally impossible to play a game with a screen that keeps going black.
     Those few seconds of blank screen caused me to be killed numerous times.  HIGHLY unacceptable.
     Tomorrow I will call the Hauppauge help desk people and see if they have a remedy.  I'll probably scour the net looking for tech help in other places as well, as all the reviews have made it clear the help desk is seriously lacking. 

     This product needs an overhaul STAT.  With a bit of work, this item has immense value.  It shouldn't be a great struggle to obtain a semi working capture ability for gaming.
