Hauppauge isn’t the first company to unveil the HD PVR. However, at $249, they might be one of the more affordable options.

The HD PVR is a USB-enabled device that connects to any high-def cable or satellite box, and records HD into the H.264 AVC format. Included software allows for playback on a PC.

It can also make AVCHD recordings, which is the format used on Blu-ray players. The recordings, however, can be made onto a traditional DVD disc. Hauppauge says about two hours of Blu-ray content can fit on a 4.7GB DVD.

Sadly, there are no product photos yet; however, the HD PVR will be available sometime in Q1 2008.
