I have a AverMedia M179 card, which is pretty much exactly like the
PVR-250. I had some quality issues when I first set up my system
with it, but now I have a picture quality that is no different from
the satellite source image. All I had to do was play with the
brightness/contrast/color settings after also setting a decent
bitrate and resolution.
I have three resolution settings (high, med, low) that I use for more
important to less important shows. I set them pretty much at what
TiVo uses by default (I found these on some TiVo list somewhere):
