I was looking at getting a Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-250 and Sagetv for my Shuttle XPC but i hear that the Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-250 puts off alot of heat. I was wondering if this is true? Cause its pretty tight in the shuttle, I am wondering if I should go with the External USB 2.0 Hauppauge device and SageTV.

Yes, the PVR-250 generates a lot of heat. I have two in my PVR and it needs a lot of cooling.

But I don´t think it´s a problem as long as you´re not going for a really quiet setup, If you have efficient casefans that suck out the hot air it´s no problem.

I have an older 250 and the heat sink on the main chip does get really hot. I don't know if newer versions are better. You might want to ask this question at http://www.shspvr.com/forum/ where there has been much discussion of how hot this board gets and whether or not the heat sink is adequate.
