I have looked at the HDhomerun product and it looks pretty good but does not
have analog channel support yet (correct me if I am wrong) so I was wondering
what people are using successfully with both QAM/ATSC and analog channel support?

thanks!

in short, you have to go split....because the combo tuners just aren't that great.

The best configuration still is:

SD: Hauppauge PVR-150/250/500
HD: HDHomeRun

period.

no drivers from hauppauge i should have said. the drivers out there have no atsc and no analog yet. it does say it supports qam...so i guess thats something. i do hope they get some good linux support for this someday...well...maybe...i would have liked one for the pci-e slot. ill end up with the hdhomerun anyway though. i dont need analog for anything anymore anyway.
