The AverTV Express HD DVR requires Windows 7/Vista/Xp (32/64) bit operating system equipped with an Intel Core i7 920XM 2.0GHz or equivalent AMD processor for capturing HD H.264 video, or at least an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz or an equivalent AMD processor.
I put the software disk into an Acer Aspire AS5750-9851
DVD R/W drive and installed the software, and then inserted the AverTV Express HD DVR. The laptop has a 34mm express slot, so I did not need to use the stabilizer. The laptop recognized the new device and installed the device drivers for it. Once the device drivers finished installing, I connected the dongle cable with the AverTV Express HD DVR.
