If anything, there is a slight chance you might see increased quality due to
hardware improvements (new tuners, etc.)  Most notably, it seems that people
using the Rev 1 (old) PVR-250s have had quality problems that users of new
boards don't seem to notice.

I wish the PVR-350 I have used the Philips 1236MK3 tuner and not one of the
earlier ones - its tuner is FAR worse than the 1236D (And I believe the
1236MK3's analog design is identical to the 1236D's)
