Definitely true! At this point, first-timers should stick with

Yes. The PVR-500 is newer than the PVR-150 and, as a matter of fact, is
even less-well supported than the PVR-150. So, go with a PVR-250,
then--once you've got some experience setting up the ivtv drivers--you
can add additional cards as desired. I.e. buy one PVR-250 now, then buy
either PVR-250's or PVR-150's once you get the first working.
