I'm looking to buy a 2nd card (my first is a PVR-250), and I'm debating
about getting a M179 off ebay, or another PVR-250. How does the quality
compare between them? I've read some postings about M179's having bad
quality, but that may only apply to the Windows drivers (which I don't
care about). If there is any difference in quality, I'll spend the
extra for another PVR-250. If the quality is the same, then I might as
well save the money. Does a M179 and a PVR-250 play nice together in
the same box? Which would you recommend for a 2nd card? Thanks!
