Comment(by fedorowp at gmail.com):

 I've built a very high-end box using the HD PVR with MythTV for a client.
 I've been running it with the data-rates at maximum, the picture quality
 is impressive, and (so far) it is stable, provided no USB devices are hot-
 plugged while the HD PVR is on.  If one does that, the machine locks-up.

 The analogue audio recording level is also a bit too low, even with
   options hdpvr boost_audio=1
 in /etc/modprobe.d/options

 The lack of AC-3 (5.1 channel audio) is also a substantial let-down, but
 hopefully Hauppauge will release the new firmware soon that will correct
 that, as well as improving the stability of interlaced video.

 Another bug also present is that the top scan-line of the scene shows a
 binary data pattern that is probably the CC data, particularly for
 analogue channels.  As long as the TV is overscanning the picture, as is
 normal for them, it is not visible, but it will be a substantial visual
 problem when viewing recorded programs on a PC.

 Overall, it's really getting there, though I have to admit I would be
 delighted to work with Hauppauge to make an improved more media-PC
 friendly version.
