Review of the EyeTV 250 Plus from Elgato

Throughout my geeky history, I've been an awful lot of things... a Magic card player, a Pokemon addict, a Civilization builder, a "Second Quest" completer.  I've had more PDA's and cellphones than I can count and have a pretty extensive vintage game collection.  I can't get enough of Apple products, qualifying for "fan" but falling short of "fanboy."

But, until now, one thing I have not really gotten into is television.  That's not to say that I never looked upon my friends' ReplayTV or TiVo units with jealousy, or that I never watched TV - but more that I was never really a TV "geek."
