Excerpt: Origanly I was planning on buying a Tivo. Unfortunately I was not able to because Tivo was not available in Canada at the time. Another factor was that I could not justify the monthly Tivo fee so I bought the Hauppauge WInTV-PVR USB2 as an alternative.
Pros: OK picture quality, awesome software for Tivo-style recording, great live pause function, just discovered it has a screen snapshot function, good remote
Cons: The main reason i bought this product was to play Xbox on my laptop, but to my dismay......the lag between the time I press a button on the controller and the time it does the move is too long!!!
