Anyone here have a WinTV PVR (original, 250, or 350)?

Just bought a PVR250 this afternoon, and so far I love it. I had a choice between this and getting another, bigger HDD (already have an 80GB, but huffyuv-compressed, higher-res video was bringing even this to it's knees. 640x480=~30GB/hr!). Since all I orginally had was an WinTV-go, I decided to get the card instead: stereo sound & hardware encoding. Now I can actually still USE my computer while I'm capturing something :eek:"i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border="0">. I can make VCDs for anybody that has a DVD player, and I can just capture at a high bit-rate then reencode to Divx for stuff that I just want to keep. So what do you think of it? any problems you've come across? Just curious.
