Hauppauge PVR150 Rumor

BYOPVR.com points out some interesting rumors about a low cost Hauppauge PVR 250, a video capture card with MPEG2 encoding. The Hauppauge PVR 250 is the conventional choice for building your own PVR since most Windows and Linux PVR software support it and the MPEG2 encoding takes a lot of processing off of the CPU. The 150 will be a lower cost version of the 250.

Here are the rumored specs:

  • 1 ?Philips? 125 channel cable ready TV Tuner

  • 1 Conexant CX25843 A/V Decoder

  • 1 Conexant CX23416 MPEG Encoder

  • 1 TV input

  • 1 S-Video

  • 1 RCA Composite

  • 1 1/8 Stereo mini jack

  • 1 IR port

If true, this would make building a multi-tuner PVR all that much cheaper. I'll definitely be buying one of these once to augment my system.
