Rogers 4250 + Hauppauge HD-PVR vs Rogers 8300?
I already have a decent HTPC setup, but have been using Rogers basic cable with an analog tv tuner card and and standard def TV. Finally upgraded to a plasma tv, and now realize my options for recording high-def are extremely limited. Wondering if there is any real advantage to going with a Rogers 4250 STB + Hauppauge HD-PVR instead of just getting the Rogers 8300 PVR? I use Vista Media Center, though wouldn't rule out switching to Sage. I also have no interest in hooking it up to a PS3 to record Blu-ray discs, etc. it will be used purely for recording TV.
