How are ATI's ATSC tuners? What chipset do they use?

One thing that makes me worry about this one, right from the getgo, they dont have a clue about what HD ATSC file sizes can be:

Quote:
Record ATSC digital TV to your PC's hard disk using high quality MPEG-2. ATSC digital TV recordings will typically consume 4 Gb of disk space per hour.

I get typical file sizes of around 5.2 GB for 720p and 7.6 GB for 1080i, IIRC.

It all depends on your local affiliate and what they do with the signal. one of my local FOX HD's runs around 6.8GB/hour on 720p material, but the ABC is barely 6.0GB. I've had a CBS feed at almost 8GB per hour before they started to multicast a SD and weather channel.

I would really hate to have an affiliate that dumbed down the HD signal to only 4GB per hour.

Hauppauge is referring to "ATSC digital TV recordings" - which could be SD or HD. So yes, HD recordings are usually much higher than 4GB/hour, but maybe if you average in SD recordings it's closer to their quoted figure.

Anyone used the new Hauppage WinTV-HVR-950 yet?

http://www.hauppauge.com/pages/produ...ta_hvr950.html

Just wondering if anyone has initial impressions about quality, software compability, etcetc...

edit: weird I swear I searched before posting.

Anyway, the MSRP is expected to be $100
