It will capture HDMI, which the HDPVR won't do, so it might be useful to someone with extra money. I think it's still 
cheaper than the HD Fury.

I'm not sure how it deals with HDCP (or doesn't).

The HDPVR will fail when they finally implement selective output control, so we do have to keep our eyes open for 
alternatives, but this looks to be too pricey, for me at least.
