Hi Timothy,

I was in the same position as you and found an inexpensive pvr500 on
eBay.  It's a nice card, and more importantly, doesn't interfere with
the ATSC cards I have.

I also now have a cable HD box connected up to it.  PVRINPUT will change
the channels on the box to the correct one and either select SVIDEO on
the PVR500 or the HDPVR box and display it in HD.

At quick glance, it looks like there are quite a few Hauppauge PVR
devices listed on eBay at the moment.  Just make sure it's an NTSC one.
 The first two I got were PAL (even though sold from Detroit).  The guy
didn't realise, in the end I sent them to a friend in Hungary.

Rob
