I don't have the HDHomeRun, but after my experience with PCI HDTV
cards I've been seriously looking at selling the three I have and
buying two HDHomeRuns. If you only plan to ever have one tuner the PCI
cards aren't bad, but at 3 I get the sense that its too much for the
motherboard to handle properly. Plus it leaves more room for another
PVR card =D
