I tried looking through http://linuxtv.org for some information on the 2250
but the site is a little hard to follow, boat loads of links, etc. and I
didn't see a forum link.  Since the 2250 is a dual tuner card I like its
options and might consider waiting until a driver for Analog is completed if
I could find out some stats on that.

I stumbled across this site with some drivers for the 22xx series but
"assume" its not for Analog (http://steventoth.net/linux/hvr22xx/)?

Yes, mpeg2 is preferred as its much more friendly for converting and
watching on other devices.

The HVR-1600 is the other option as has been pointed out and does allow for
dual recording if I'm correct, one on Analog the other digital but not 2
digital or 2 Analog..?

Thanks guys for all the input.

Also thanks for the link with the card list, its helpful to see the options
and be able to compare quickly.
