In essence, this Hauppage box combined with any player/receiver that has component outputs, will be the same as a 169-modded satellite receiver with two differences:
1. it uses USB instead of FireWire
2. it encodes the stream on the fly

Since any hidef optical formats can be ripped much more easily and no quality loss (and so is OTA), this solution is only of interest to users of cable/satellite receivers.
