Tune into DVB-S, DVB-T, analog cable and FM radio on a single card

Hauppauge has released a new addition to its WinTV product lineup: the WinTV-HVR-3000. The new WinTV-HVR-3000 can tune into three different video sources.

The  new tri-mode TV tuner can decode DVB-S satellite, DVB-T terrestrial and regular analogue cable sources.  The new tuner also supports FM, DVB-S and DVB-T audio broadcasts.

In terms of recording the WinTV-HVR-3000 can store audio and video in MPEG2 or MPEG1 formats. Hauppauge bundles its own WinTV application with WinTV-Scheduler for automated recording features. Automated recording features are also backed by a 7-day electronic program guide too. An IR remote is also included for use with the Hauppauge WinTV software as well.

Expect the WinTV-HVR-3000 to be available for European consumers very soon.

PCIe is not what its cracked up to be for lots of companies, the high latency attributed to it is a cause for concern, esp since it cost MORE to manufacture for PCIe cards when they already have equipment in place for PCI cards.

Still more PCI slots than PCIe slots on market. One of the many reasons when cards still come in PCI form, first seen with Creative soundcards, they just recently started with some PCIe cards.

A tv card is quite a bus-hog though and would be the first thing you'd advise to move to PCIe.
Also, the latency is a nice excuse Creative throws around but it seems graphics cards run fine on PCIe without weird delays or issues, so it sounds like bullshit to me to quote latency.
Third, since devices on old PCI have to share the bus you'll find that there's your source for latency.
reallife example: I had a system with a TV-card and a gigabit NIC and if I used the TV preview while transferring data the transfers crawled with what seemed like dialup speeds.
