Thanks for the info. I believe I am going to order the PVR250. What do you mean you use the Sagetv client?[/QUOTE]
If you will use your card to watch and record tv (cable, satellite, air), then sagetv is a very useful tuner interface that provides on screen program listing and allows you to schedule recordings, etc. Think of it as Tivo for your pc.
The pvr 250 comes with another client called Wintv2000 which is similar but not as good as Sagetv for doing this. The tv programing guide is superior in Sagetv I think, so that's why I use it instead of WinTV that comes with the pvr250.
