Got one of these on Craigslist recently. Awesome!!
Hooked it up to WMC. Super easy. Caused MAJOR improvements on the way we watch OTA HDTV.
Free DVR. Pretty much unlimited storage. Super easy to record. Great to skip commericals. yada, yada... Very cool!
yep they're great, had mine(the old silver dual) for 3 years now after having Tivo, and never looked back.
Does this device need a cable TV or Dish/Directv service? What's the main use of it. Thx for your patience!
It requires TV source to be either OTA (Over-the-Air) or Cable TV (needs Cable card - and need a PRIME version of this unit). But you do need to have a source. It does not stream TV from internet, if that's what you are wondering. So why you want to have this? Well, you are thinking about ditching DVR box from your cable company or ditching Tivo service subscription, then this device will allow you to do DVR functionality on any PC, Mac or linux box. It also allows you to stream live tv to your iPad (you need to buy an app) or other supported tablet. Bascially, it makes watching tv possible in any and all part of your house so long as you can get a decent wireless signal to your pc/laptop/tablet or even iPhone for that matter.
For me watching tv instead of reading newpaper (you know when/where ) makes it totally worth it.
