Time was, mythtv-users would get people asking every month or two
"Will the [Blackmagic|Neuros|some other video-capture gadget wth
component-in jacks] capture and compress HD video?" One would have
thought that the HD-PVR's arrival would have ended such questions for
good but no, now it's "Will the [Blackmagic|Neuros|some other gadget]
be cheaper than the HD-PVR?" Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.
