The packaging for the Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition is a vast improvement on the HD PVR Gaming Edition we saw nearly a year ago. It has a cool gaming graphic on the front which highlights the product, explaining that it is possible to record from either Playstation 3 or Xbox 360.
The back of the box explains the features in more detail, and explains the new feature which allows for no-delay HDMI video passthrough.
Hauppauge include a standard 6V power adapter for this device.
Also included is a good collection of cables; including 2 HDMI cables, a USB 2.0 cable and a component cable specifically for the PS3.
There is also a fairly short set-up guide, a ‘customer letter’ from Hauppauge themselves, as well as a CD which includes both the drivers and bundled software.
The company bundle high grade USB and HDMI cables with the product, both of which are long enough to travel from console to PC.
The PS3 component cable is of a high quality, and all the jacks are colour coded. If you wanted to use a different device other than the PS3 via the component cable, you can, as they have included an adapter and not just one straight cable.
