Why would anyone want to use a card like the hd2k for analog when you can get a
pvr250 and go straight to mpeg2 with no cpu load?  I never have understood
this.. I do loathe analog tv, but I do see a need for it remaining, but I don't
see why one would not just use a real hardware encoding card for analog tv over
a card like the hd2k/3k
