I'm looking at the new dual-tuner Hauppauge PVR television card, the 500 MCE
. I'd be using it with a third-party PVR application, not MCE itself. Does anyone have any experience with the card, or know of any reviews?
I purchased my first TV card a year ago, an MSI TV Anywhere Master. I wasn't impressed with the card itself or
MSI's support. I've been looking at the Hauppauge cards as I want something with hardware encoding (I only have a P4 1.5 GHz), and was surprised to find that the 500 was out, and costs little more than the 250.
My intention is to watch and record standard cable on my computer. (Not interested in outputting to a television, or anything.)
Your advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
