So how will this work? Is it intended to work with WinTV? If so, how will you change the channel? I do not see any IR ports where you could pass the IR signal to the settop box (unless there is a single port by the USB port).
Will it come with MCE or VMC drivers and look like a capture card over the USB port if someone wants to use it like that? Same thing with the optical SPDIF - one input and one output. Coaxial SPDIF would have been nice too.
If it integrated well with digital cable and MCE 2005, then I would be more likely to upgrade to digital cable from the analog cable I have now. (I currently get my local HD channels with an ATSC tuner)
I agree with the other poster that the component connectors are likely pass-thru - one set in and one set out.
Really wish Hauppauge would spend another 50 cents to upgrade that ancient retread $2 remote. I have the same one from their Media MPV device and another clone of it from my Hauppauge Satellite card. I'm sure if I dug my old Hauppauge PVR card out of the attic... it would be the same old tired $2 remote. Looks like every other Chinese el-cheepo remote on the market.
C'mon Hauppauge, time to update your product with a better remote.
