Good to know.  I haven't ever seen one, so I didn't want to recommend 
it, but it's definitely another choice for the value-minded shopper.  It 
would allow a dual tuner system for $451 ($151 less than with dual 
PVR-250's) or a single tuner system for $398 ($75 less than a single 
PVR-250).  There's also the option of getting one PVR-250 and one M179 
and using the PVR-250 as the primary card for a total dual-tuner system 
cost of $527 ($75 less than a dual-PVR-250 system).
