Same exact device, AFAIK.  I believe they even use the same usb vid/pid.

I believe the information above about a Samsung ATSC frontend is inaccurate.

Hauppauge does in fact provide an svideo / composite a/v break-out adapter,
and it is the same exact one in the photo.

It might be the same design, although I am not sure.  They mention,
"ATSC Digital Radio", a feature that I am not yet aware of.

If it is the same design, then all of them can support it.
