ok I ordered from the page that was given to me... but this is what I got...
"Thank you for your online order# 36455 I can not process your order due to an FCC ruling.Unfortunately due to an FCC ruling Hauppauge Computer Works is no longer allowed to ship out analog tuners to consumers.This is due to the transition of broadcast TV signal from analog to digital come Feb. of 2009. The WINTV-PVR500MC kit Has an NTSC analog tuner on the board. Hauppauge has an equivalent product line to the PVR product line and that is the HVR(Hybrid Video Recorder).The HVR is a Hybrid unit and they have two tuner applications on the board. It has 1-NTSC analog 125 channel cable ready tuner and 1- ATSC digital tuner. The equivalent HVR is the WINTV-HVR2250 model# 01213. You can read up On the unit on Hauppauge Computer Works web site found on the home page as a new item.  Please look at the Hybrid tuner devices for an equivalent. In the mean time I will have to cancel your order and your credit card will not charge. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Hauppauge Computer Works at 800-443-6284 or by e-mail at sales at hauppauge.com and any of the sales reps can assist you. Regards,VincentHauppauge Computer Works
