I was wondering about that.
That maybe an issue that might deter me from getting it.
I was wondering why it has taken so long to get another batch of these cards out on the market.
Did they do any changes to the card on this batch compare to the last?
I just do not think you can put it that simply. Although by almost any standard, the WinTV-HD is at the bottom on the list. Whether HiPix or Access come out on top again depends on what you want to do. I like archiving movies to Digital8 camcorder tape and having the option to share material (consistent with copyright laws) with others who may have missed a program I recorded. So I chose HiPix.
