Thanks for the replies.  After letting the card record for a day, it's
apparent that I'm capturing whatever is sent-the capture resolution settings
are irrelevant for the card.   Close to 7GB/hr for what must be HDTV (based
on file size and on-screen appearance) and my normal 2.2GB/hr for
programs/channels that are SDTV.  I found the aspect override setting in
playback setup setting to 16:9 has taken care of my aspect ratio issue...

Again, thanks for the insight.  Looks like the FusionHDTV 5 Lite is easy to
setup and works great in my hands...
