Well, that depends a bit, from my own experience with 0.1.9 I would have 
agreed with you up to a couple of weeks ago.... until I bought my second 
PVR250 that is, that's when I noticed that the 0.1.9 really doesn't 
handle 2 or more cards very well. It would always lock up my system a 
few minutes after having started a second recording.

So yes, try 0.1.9 first and if that work for you just stay with it, 
otherwise try one of the 0.1.10pre2 ones that people recommend on the list.
