One of the most exciting products of 2008 is the Hauppauge HD-PVR
, because it enables you to record any HD source you want by exploiting the analog hole. The problem up until now has been that while you can already enjoy DirecTV HD on your SageTV setup in all its glory, you've had to settle for stereo audio. That is finally changing as Hauppauge as the latest beta driver now adds support Dolby Digital 5.1 (AC3), and AAC to top it off. But even if surround sound isn't your thing, you may still want to check out this update as it also resolves a few other miscellaneous issues that might be bothering you.
