Hi Neighbor (I'm in Cheyenne).

They will all work for you. The 150- MCE comes with a Windows MCE-type
remote while the standard 150 comes with the Hauppauge remote, so it
really depends on what you want to do with remote controls.

I've also seen "White Box" OEM packages with no remote, god sor you
second or third capture card or if you are using some other (or no)
remote arrangement.

The 500 is a dual tuner unit, good if you are tight for PCI slots.
