I have one of the samples.  The advantages to something like the HDHR:

1)  You can put it close to your antenna - mine is in the attic, where I 
found that it's easier to pull CAT5 then to have a super-long run of RG6 
into the basement.
2)  It's dedicated.  It does one thing really well, doesn't contend with 
other hardware in a PC, no IRQ conflicts, busmastering PCI slots or 
other PC-type stuff to worry about.
3)  It does QAM and VSB, so you can have one interface connected to a 
over-the-air antenna, and the other to CATV.

I used VLC on Windows to get the initial configuration tested; once that 
was going I added it as a capture device in MythTV and that was pretty 
much it.
