I use hauppauge cards (PVR150, 250). Just got one with a built-in PVR1600 - can do HDTV recording via cable (clear QAM). The output is awesome.

I've not had any problems with brightness on the 150. I use SageTV to record.

The PVR150 randomly has IRE/brightness and audio issues. Those cards have multiple production runs from what I've read, so your card from last month may be different from the next one.

I use the Hauppauge 150, 250 and 350. The 350 is by far the best of the lot. They all do a great job though. You really can't go wrong with any of them.

I just started using a new gadget, HDHomeRun, to record HDTV transmissions via clear QAM. Slick device! I captured episodes just recently, widescreen and very nice video/audio. Of course since HDTV is at 59fps, it takes a while to convert to standard dvd format. But worth the effort.
