Question Hauppauge HD PVR or HD PVR 2?

For various reasons I've ended up with 2 Hauppauge HD PVR boxes and was considering using one of them to record Sky HD and was curious if anyone has used these or has any experience with using them with SageTV?

I'm currently using the HD PVR to record Sky SD (composite video) and that's working well (apart from refusing to flag the video aspect ratio correctly, reports everything as 4:3). From what I understand the new Sky boxes don't have component video outputs so if I was to continue using this for HD I guess I'd have to get an HDCP compliant HDMI to component converter as it has no HDMI input.

If I were to move over to the HD PVR 2 I could do the same or get hold of an HDCP friendly splitter and use the HDMI input. HDMI was my original plan but after searching around a bit on the forums there are posts about stability/compatibility issues with the HD PVR 2, but I can't tell if they relate to older boxes/drivers. The HD PVR 2 has no composite input so I haven't tried using it with SageTV yet.

So options are:
SkyHD -> HDMI/Component -> HD PVR Component
SkyHD -> HDMI/Component -> HD PVR 2 Component
SkyHD -> HDMI/splitter -> HD PVR 2 HDMI

Any thoughts?
