Hauppauge HD PVR -Newbie

Hi guys! Thank you very much for the quick replies/help with my questions. Unfortunately I am from the earlier generation that did record from LP's - hahahaha.

Is there a minimum hardware requirement with either method? the Hauppauge site calls out the following:
System Requirements

* Processor Requirements (minimum):
Dual core CPU
* Graphics with 256MB memory (or greater)
Note: the playback of high definition H.264 requires a fast CPU and at least 256MB of graphics memory
* Sound card

If I was to just record onto the PC but not playback on PC why would I need the 256mb video card? If I was to go with the hauppauge i would like to offload recordings onto the pc and create an AVCHD file, burn this onto a DVD that is readable on a BLuRay player as 720p content.
