Well, it might be a little early to answer these questions thoroughly
since the very first cards reached the end-users yesterday, but the
first comments sound quite promising. According to this post[1] by
"spitzb", the card seems to work quite well. Here's a brief translation:

"There are no artifacts while zapping around. The picture turns black,
returns and that's it. On 1080i channels there is sometimes a still
picture for 0.5 seconds, but afterwards the picture gets fine again
immediately.
Zapping intervals are around 1-2s from HD to HD and below 1s from HD/SD
to SD channels.
Moving fast forward and backwards in recordings is working flawlessly
including moving the cut-marks, sometimes there are a few block artifacts.
All in all it feels 'rock stable'. The picture is upscaled to 1080i and
looks much better than on eHD (Reel)."

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
  Roland
