It's here! That was bloody quick.
I just had it delivered to my desk at work.
The back of the box says:
"What can HD PVR do
HD PVR can record high definition or regular TV from your satellite or cable receiver onto a PC disk drive in a compressed H.264 format. Once TV programs are recorded, you can play them back onto your PC screen or burn them on a DVD disk for playback on a Blu-ray DVD player.
H.264 format is used by Blu-ray disks and exceeds other compression standards in quality and disk space consumption, providing a crisp image and amazing digital sound. H.264 use 1/3 of disk space compare to the popular MPEG-2 format.
Make your own movie library: Once TV programs are recorded onto the PC, you can play them back on your PC screen or transfer them to a DVD or Blu-ray disk for playback on a Blu-ray DVD player. You can also play them on a Sony PlayStation 3 or a Microsoft Xbox 360.
Record your video games in HD. HD PVR can connect to your Playstation 3 or Xbox 360, so you can make recordings of your highest scoring games.
Amazing Quality
HD PVR records videos using H.264 compression with digital audio at HD resolutions up to 1080i. Watch the recordings on your PC screen or HD TV set in full HD!
Use HD PVR with your Set Top Box
Connect your satellite or cable TV receiver box and schedule TV or HDTV recordings. With the IR blaster, HD PVR can turn the set top box on, change the channel and record the selected program.
WinTV-Scheduler provides then an easy way to schedule these recordings from your PC. Find your favorite movie, sports event or show, schedule it and let HD PVR take over!"

Can't wait to get it home and try it out.
Only thing is, I'll have to wait until my component-to-DVI cable arrives from Uncle eBay to watch the live output at my desk. :/

edit: No, wait! I can use my laptop with "the big TV" until it gets here! Yippee!
