Just to confirm, you're saying you see similar analog performance with the 1600 
and a PVR-x50?

Is this using the RF tuner or with composite/S-Video input? If RF, cable or 

I'd expect similar performance, although more highly integrated, the basic 
design of the encoders on both cards are similar. I'd expect that differences 
between the cards might be due to different tuners, but you never knew what 
tuner you would get with the PVR cards anyway, I have 5 cards and 3 different 
tuner models.

There were many different models of PVR, some with radios, some without, some 
with RCA audio inputs, some with a 1/8" stereo jack, some low-profile, some 
standard, some with IR receivers, some with IR receivers/blasters, some with 
no IR capability at all, you never really know what someone is talking about 
when they say "PVR-150".
