Whoops - looks like I might have sent my last reply directly to Steven.
Sorry about that.

Anyway, update.  Installed in the windows machine, and got the drivers
installed successfully, but the player software that comes with the card
requires windows xp, and the newest version of windows I have is 2000.  I
know analog capture is pretty well supported in windows by things like
virtualdub and media player classic, but do you know of any apps I can use
to test the HD functionality?

While I had the card out, got the following from visual inspection:

Printed on the PCB:
pctv 800i rev 1.1

There were two large visible chips on the card:
Samsung C649 S5H1409X01-T0  N079X

Conexant Broadcast Decoder  CX23883-39  72013496  0729 Korea

I imagine the tuner chip is hidden under the metal box (shielding?).
