The HDfury3 supports two features that I would like.  The first is 
user-selectable EDID, so I could tell it not to support 1080p (since the 
Hauppauge HD PVR doesn't support 1080p).  The second feature is DTS 5.1 
digital audio out.

The first I think I can probably fix in the set top box.  The second is 
more of a problem, but I'm not sure I care enough to pay the extra ($260 
vs $145 on Amazon).

Do you have an HDfury?
