    Is this not just an external USB HD capture device? What makes it unique (aside from maybe AVCHD)?

    Yes, its a external USB HD capture device.

    Its the only consumer device that I'm aware of that supports the capture of high definition analog video, with hardware encoder on board. This will be a big deal for the US where there is no other convenient way for them to record the premium high definition channels they receive via their digital cable/satellite set top boxes. I suspect it'll sell like hotcakes...

    Not as useful outside north america.

    Featured on Engadget HD

    congrats, sub. You were featured on engadget HD for releasing support for the HD PVR before it was even out.

    Mind if I ask how you scored one so early? Does it look anything like the final product - or is it a caseless circuit board with some connectors soldered on ? I assume it's because of GB-PVR, if I were Hauppauge, I would have given a prototype out to any major PVR developer since there is no demand for the product w/o support.

    Anyway, its about time you got the recognition - engadget's been teasing about the HD-PVR for a couple of months and kept stating that they expected support for the device "shortly after it's release". Mega props for scooping the world on this!!

    Turns out the poor developer is just "too busy with other stuff" and doesn't have HD content to really show this off right now, though (they're located in New Zealand).
    LOL. That "poor developer" also doesn't have access to QAM but has somehow managed to add support for more QAM devices than any other PVR program.

    philly_phenom, if you haven't noticed, there is a reason that most GBPVR users have Hauppauge devices. sub has very good contacts within Hauppauge and an excellent working relationship with them. That aside, I believe they did supply several developers/companies with prototypes. sub, apparently, was the only one that didn't shelve support for the device until a release date was scheduled.

    Until the ICT flag starts getting used. Then the analog component capture won't be as exciting.
