    Besides, a BT848 is a dinosaur. I had one of those in 98. The card
is bound to be old enough that it's living on borrowed time. Plus it
adds a level of complexity to the situation that's really not needed

    The more complex you make your system, the more likely it will
break. That's one reason I don't bother with transcode jobs anymore.
Plus the HD-PVR makes it a moot point. It's output is already nicely


     Past a certain point some tech just isn't worth holding onto anymore.
