10 No, I'm not doing any off-the-air. Just S-VHS in. Also, the Hauppauge card
11 is Std Def only, or more exactly - MPEG2. Over the air broadcast, and most cable
12 and sat. broadcasts are not of interest to me - the content tends to suck.

17 I played with the remote that came with the Hauppauge, but never got it working.
18 As I'm close to the screen, the remote doesn't really do more than get lost. So
19 as lirc has improved, I never made much effort.

24 I've read that Ati's remote works well. But mostly it seems that how much effort
25 you're willing to put into the details is the main issue on remotes.
