Why are you looking at the 2 pcHDTV cards instead of an HDHomeRun?

I have both a pcHDTV-5500 and an HDHR (and a PVR-150) and both were fairly
easy to configure. I have never made use of the pcHDTV-5500's analog
recording capability because I found it cumbersome to have to record the
audio stream separately. I prefer the HDHR for the ease of setup and I can
plug the HDHR and its associated coaxial cables in a closet without the need
for extra clutter by my TV. There is also a good amount of cost savings for
the single HDHR over the two pcHDTV-5500's if all you care about is the
digital recording capability.
