I've gone through a few forums and gotten some information, and I wanted to ask the forum's opinion in straightforward dialogue. I have a PIII 733 with 400MB ram in it. I want to set it up to record TV, which I can later burn to DVD, and I guess I'm just asking if its too slow. Basically, it seems I should get either the Hauppauge 150 or the 350, if any thing at all. The most important thing I want it to be able to do is record television while I listen to MP3s. Being able to watch TV and record is good too, but I can live without it. I'm not worried about how long it'll take to re-encode, I can do it overnight. Do you think I'll need the hard-encoder on the 350? Are there any other perks to the 350 that would make it worth getting anyway? Or is the machine just too slow.
