But if you skip the encoding, and make it work like a frame grabber,
then you either have to store the uncompressed video, or have your CPU
do the encoding. In either case you are not helping the situation.

If you really want "instant response" you do not want a PVR, you want a
TV set. You can accomplish this by simply connecting the source to the
TV set's video input directly.

Cheaper, faster, and you wouldn't have to read this list, just the TV
guide :-)
