I don't think the visionplus one comes with a remote control. The remote
with the nova-t is pretty good and works well with MythTV. It'd be worth
the extra for that.

Also, scan sell the nova-t without remote for only 5 quid more than the
visionplus. Again I'd be prepared to pay the extra for consistency, and
because I already have the nova-t (though the last model) and it works
very well.

As to the software, windows users seem to complain lots about the
hauppage, so I don't think you're paying for that. :)

Not heard anything on the visionplus, but the nova-t has pretty good
reception for a tv card. Certainly mine is very good - you should see
the picture on an analogue set, virtually unwatchable at times.
