Ok... Hauppauge HVR-1600? What would you guys get? How many tuners
would you have?
This might sound strange, but I haven't owned a TV since 1994 so this is
a particularly hard gift for me to judge. I take it you want more than
one tuner so you can record with one and watch with another? Would I
want two HVR-1600s? Is this even the right brand I should be going for?
