Colossus 2 Installation Guide (this guide)
Set up and using the WinTV v7 application guide (also used for the WinTV v8 application)
The Hauppauge Colossus 2 is an internal PCI Express board for desktop PCs, and records video
in HD from a cable or satellite set top box, PC video (through the PC’s HDMI video output port) or avideo game console such as the Xbox One, Playstation 4 and other HDMI equiped game consoles.Colossus 2 is essentially the HD PVR 2 model 1512 on an internal PCI Express board.There are two video recording applications which come with Colossus 2:- WinTV v8 is used to schedule TV recordings from a set top box- Hauppauge Capture was designed to record video from game consoles and has a convenientone-click upload to YouTube. But many users find this easy to use recording application handyfor recording video from cable and satellite set top boxes
Colossus 2 recordings are made onto a computer’s hard drive in a compressed H.264 format. It
records from HDMI or Component Video (also called YPrPb). You can also record S-Video or com-posite video using and optional A/V cable (you can purchase this on the Hauppauge Webstore). Itwill record at 1080p30, 720p or 480p at datarates from 1Mbit/sec up to 13.5Mbits/sec. UsingVariable Bit Rate encoding, datarates will range up to 21 Mbits/sec when there is fast motion.
ote: if you are recording from a cable or satellite box or a PS3, you will use Component
Video. Most set top boxes and the PS3 do not allow recording from the HDMI port.
Audio can be supplied to the Colossus 2 from stereo audio connectors on the Hauppauge AVcable, optical audio cable or HDMI. Colossus 2 comes bundled with the WinTV v8 and
Hauppauge Capture applications to record videos. There are three types of recording formats:
TS: this is a native H.264 format used by WinTV v8 and Hauppauge Capture. TS files are often used to
burn Blu-ray discs. The TS files recorded with the HD PVR 2 can be edited with Sony Vegas (all ver-
M2TS: a popular format used by many video editors
MP4: this is similar to the TS file but has an index at the beginning of the file.
Installing Colossus 2Step 1. Install the Colossus 2 board in your PC
Turn the power off on your PC. Install Colossus 2 into a PCI
Express X1 or X16 slot. Turn the power on to your PC.
Step 2: Connect the Colossus 2 cables.HDMI video input
You can connect the HDMI output of some cable TV or satellite
boxes and game consoles such as the PS4 and the Xbox One into
Colossus 2. Colossus 2 supports HDMI sources up to 1080p60,
though the maximum record resolution is 1080p30.
The HDMI video source needs to be un-encrypted. If you try to view
or record encrypted video sources, you will get a black screen.
Component video input (YCrCb or YPrPb)
Plug the Hauppauge A/V adapter cable into A/V input on the
back of Colossus 2. Then connect the Component video cable

Hauppauge A/V cable set.

There are three ways to connect to the Colossus 2 from your cable TV or satellite TV set top box:
a) you can connect using HDMI, though some cable TV and satellite set top boxes encrypt the HDMI
output from their box. If you get a black screen on WinTV or Hauppauge Capture using HDMI, then it
is likely your set top box is encrypting the HDMI output.
b) you can connect the Component video (YCrCb or YPrPb) output from your set top box to the
A/V adapter cable located on the rear of the Colossus. The Component video colors are normally
c) you can connect the Composite video output of your set top box (normally the yellow RCA con-
nector on a set top box) to the Blue connector on the A/V cable set.

of the IR transmitter is important! The IR transmitter only works over a 1 inch distance, so you need to
make sure it is placed over the remote sensor in your set top box. Some set top boxes have the position of
the remote receiver indicated on the plastic front of the set top box. With others, you might need to look
carefully at the set top box for what looks like a round or square area underneath the plastic front panel.

your set top box.
