Good to know. I haven't ever seen one, so I didn't want to recommend
it, but it's definitely another choice for the value-minded shopper. It
would allow a dual tuner system for $451 ($151 less than with dual
PVR-250's) or a single tuner system for $398 ($75 less than a single
PVR-250). There's also the option of getting one PVR-250 and one M179
and using the PVR-250 as the primary card for a total dual-tuner system
cost of $527 ($75 less than a dual-PVR-250 system).
