I'm using a pvr-500 and a 250 in my mythtv setup. The PVR-500's
quality isn't nearly as good as the 250. I'm using the 0.6 series
ivtv drivers. There are what appear like scanlines that run down the
screen on certain channels using the second tuner. Also, there are
problems with channel 45, for whatever reason. My adult swim looks
like crap :-(

I'd recommend two 250's or 150's rather than a 500 if you have the
room on your motherboard. Seems that Samsung based 500's are really
causing quite a few problems.
