This seems like only a break-out box including no tuner. Only a
buy-pass with support for different formats.
Basically, it inputs/outputs High Definition (aka HD) video.
The pvrusb2 device is a tuner along with mpeg2 codec support

A lot of people need legacy plugs. Besides, they're usually pretty
cheap to add. They're used for a number of things besides accepting
input from TV tuners -- such as Closed Circuit TV's and other recording
devices such as DVD players or Video cameras.
Granted, I don't like messing with legacy analog either these days
