I have the HD PVR and use it to archive videos and sporting events. The HD DVR connects to the HD PVR by way of the component output of the HD DVR. You will run a digital audio output from the HD DVR to allow you to keep your recordings in 5.1 DD. The HD PVR connects to your computer through a USB cable and you will run the supplied capture software on the connected computer. The unit captures the video in real time so it will take as long as the playback of the video to capture. The video quality is variable to allow for different quality videos and different sizes of files to archive.

I find the quality to be excellent and have been extremely happy with this purchase. The file format used is the MPEG-2 TS format (this may be adjustable by the software). To keep in the same quality as recorded on the HD DVR it is about 4 GB per hour at this format.

The device comes with all the wiring you need except for an optical cable. This is the connection on the back of the HD PVR that allows for digital audio.
