The only real problem with the HDTV recorders is there's only one card that will allow time shifting. You can get a hdtv tuner with capture software for around $150. That's a pretty sweet deal for a HDTV PVR.
Sorry Chuck, but what I ment by time shifting is pausing and replaying an live stream or playing a currently recording show from the start while it's recording. The AccessDTV card is the only one the can do this. AFAIK...
All other cards, HiPix, Dvico Fusion, Dvico Fusion II, and MyHD don't do it.
The price of HDs is getting affordable, but there's still the problem of where do you put all the drives? Dumping to a DVHS deck might be a good option.
