Back in the aftermath of the Consumer Electronics Show, when visions of new concepts and other gadgets were still dancing in people’s heads, we heard about a new product from Hauppauge—the HD-PVR.

There was interest, but unfortunately not much info to appease the eager “Electronic House” reader (or the staff!).

Rumored pricing for the box is about $250, which will allow you to hook this USB-enabled device into any cable or satellite box to record high-def content in the H.264 AVC format. Then you can play everything back on a PC, or record it to DVD or Blu-ray disc.

The SageTV forums (via EngadgetHD) have a few shots of the long-awaited product. They also say that the company may be taking pre-orders as early as today, although nothing was up on the site yet—and it’s almost quitting/Miller time on the East Coast.
