About a year ago, I was forced to replace my PVR 500.  Then I read about 
the Samsung tuners and decided to hold off.

As I recall, Hauppauge got an earful and went back to the Philips 
tuners.  At least when I finally did order the replacement, it had 
Philips tuners on it [Philips FQ1236A MK4 (idx 92, type 57)] and works 
wonderfully.  Unless they've gone back AGAIN to the Samsungs in the past 
few months, the PVR 500 should be safe.
