I'd been using a Hauppauge HDPVR to get my video from a Motorola 6200. I recently got a second 6200, and I already had a spare HDPVR.
During the discussions about adding two HDPVRs into a single backend, I started thinking about just using Firewire for all my video.
It turns out that none of the channels I was had any encryption on them, and video came through just fine.
I converted my entire system to use the Firewire instead of the HDPVR, and have a perfectly running system. Very nice.
With the HD-PVR I used to record 720p. The MPEG stream coming from the 6200 is (in most cases) 1080i. I haven't looked at resulting file sizes yet, but what is everyone using to transcode the MPEG stream?
