New Linux PVR option

Interesting.  I'm way close to getting *some* kinda PVR option.

The Plextor ConvertX PVR model PX-TV402U is the ultimate personal video 
recorder for the PC. The PX-TV402U allows you to connect to a satellite TV, 
cable TV or broadcast TV signal and record programs to your PC. You can then 
watch the video from the PC or burn it to DVD for playback on a DVD player. 
You can also connect a camcorder, VCR or DVD player to record home videos to 
the PC. The heart of the PX-TV402U is its multi-format encoder chip which 
converts video to the DivX)B?, MPEG-4, MPEG-2 and MPEG-1 formats as it is 
being recorded to the PC.

The PX-TV402U is the world)B?s first DivX Certified PVR. Recording video in 
the DivX format gives users the ability to record 3 times as much video as 
normal without sacrificing quality. It also gives you the ability to record 
video into resolutions perfectly suited for playback on portable and 
handheld devices. The PX-TV402U contains an integrated high quality TV tuner 
to assure the highest quality video. The PX-TV402U is an external USB 2.0 
device which connects to a PC running Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
