Some cable and satellite boxes do not allow recording from the HDMI port on the box. If you have one of these boxes, you will need to use the Component video connectors on the back of your box. Component video connectors are normally Red/Green/Blue connectors and are sometimes marked 'YPrPb'. Please check with your cable TV or satellite TV provider for the availability of Component video connectors on your box.

Colossus 2 can record HD video from either HDMI or Component video using the supplied A/V adapter cable. Both the WinTV and Hauppauge Capture applications can be set to record from either HDMI or Component video sources.

Colossus 2 Overview

Colossus 2 is an internal video recorder which plugs into PCI Express x1 or x16 slots. It contains the same studio quality video encoder which is used in the HD PVR 2, and can record both HDMI and Component video at up to 1080p30, with support for 1080p60 passthrough.


Like the HD PVR 2, Colossus 2 also has built-in hardware support for H.264 Variable (VBR) and Constant bit rate (CBR) encoding, video downscaling, and a logo inserter for putting 'bugs' or logos on your recordings or video streams.

Colossus 2 uses a high quality Analog Devices video front end, and a Magnum studio quality video encoder. The Magnum encoder supports data rates are from .2Mbits/second to 13.5 Mbits/sec CBR, with VBR datarates running to about 21 Mbits/sec.

Colossus 2 runs under Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and Windows XP.

Record your favorite TV programs from HD cable TV and satellite set top boxes. Colossus 2 connects to most HD cable TV and satellite TV receivers with component video and optical digital audio. Stereo audio inputs are supported, too. Some cable TV and satellite boxes allow recording from HDMI (non HDCP encrypted HDMI).

Includes Hauppauge's WinTV v7 TV application for automatic recording of TV programs from cable or satellite set top boxes

If you have an un-encrypted HDMI video source, such as a digital SLR, you can record directly from this source.

Includes IR blaster cable. Colossus 2 can automatically change the channel on your set top box.
