Wow!  That is great news.  it doesn't say what the res will be of the output
file tho.  we are assuming its the same as the source just re compressed.
coming from Hauppauge we would assume its a quality product and it does in
fact encode as we expect.  (There are other cards that compress the file to
480i/p basically SD)  Also, coming from hauppauge, who is a linux freiendly
company (they released there firmware GPL) and the excitement this brings to
the community dev work I assume would start rapidly.

Crossing fingers!
