It is a digital-only device (ATSC or QAM).

If you are using the VGA output of a video card or integrated mobo video
then you do not need the TV output capability of a PVR-350. A PVR-150 or
its equivalent would work fine, assuming you want to tune either analog
cable or analog NTSC broadcasts.

There is a ton of information in the WiKi and available by searching the
archives of this list.
