great piece of kit
This hd pvr is perfect for people who capture games etc.
only one small fault (im not sure if this applies to everyone who bout it), i hooked up my ps3 and xbox 360 to this via the component cables, and when using the output of the pvr the quality of the image is slightly reduced. not by much (on a 32 inch tv), but when i got the pvr connected to my HD projector it was clear that i had lost some quality.
its very minute and i wouldnt think it would make much of a difference on a screen size of 46 inches and below.
recodring to pc/laptop is straight forward, the only thing that takes very long is converting the file to another type.
This pvr codes in MTFS (what ever that is) and to change the type can take a very long time.
just over 20 mins footage of a gta IV multiplayer game took 1.13gb of my hard drive.
i still do not know the figure of the converted file type yet, but im sure it will be very large.
the playback quality it very good and the recording is also.
i definately recommend this to anyone looking for a good pvr capture card.
one more bad point is play.com used the home delivery network to send this parcel and that courier service is terrible.
they aparently had my package at my local depot for 2days, and on both days they had loaded my parcel onto a van.
it wasnt delivered until the third day!!!..
oh well i have it know and it works great
