Running the HVR 1600 in my setup. Grabbed it yesterday, got a pretty decent deal :)

Running Joost and media center at the same time in the screen cap.

Also, running F@H cpu and gpu client.

Processor usage can be seen in the gadget (I totally forget I was only using the single core jobbie , but both cores were using about the same amount of usage for reference).

Picture quality on terrestrial cable is quite excellent, looks a LOT cleaner than the picture, as does Joost. Going to use the HDTV setup soon and will post pics soon I think.

The remote rocks.

I still miss aspedcts of my AIW (-sniff-) but this jobbie is excellent :smoking:

Looks nice. Does it work well with Media Center?
Have you set it up to record shows while you are away?

Yah, very low CPU overhead :)

I bought it specifically to record the Champions League final between Liverpool and AC Milan next week :cool:

Can't wait :D

It works flawlessly with Vista Media Center and I guess I have the media center version coz it came with a media center remote.
