How do you pronounce this name? I heard someone say "hoopang" but not sure if that is correct or not

That's how I've always pronounced it. But I guess since it's got that au at the end, I'm wrong again. I've never even noticed that until today.

A kinda on-topic question: Anyone know if the Hauppauge PVR-150 is a good/decent TV Tuner? I remember seeing something about beta X64 drivers for it, and considered getting it for my computer. And if anyone's got any information on that, like if they actually work, that would be great. Thanks.
