How does DVR work?

Can you just hook up a PC/External Hard Drive to it, and every device connected to it can use that as a DVR? And how much of a bandwidth hog is it? Anyway to keep tv guide interface on a TV?

you need a windows 7 machine running windows media center (comes free w/ 7) to interface with the HDHR over your wired network (you need a wired network with this model. wireless is just asking for problems).

then you can let that hum away handling scheduling and recording to NAS or local disk. xbox 360's can act as windows media center extenders, so they become the guide front end to your MCE setup. you can watch all content recorded by any other client because it is all centrally recorded/managed. you use the extenders interface to 'record' like you normally would, but everything is happening on the backend. plus when its not busy recording or tuning for a extender, WMC can put the server in sleep mode, to be woken by the 360 clients which will send a WoL packet to wake it up. plunk down another 360 anywhere you want TV. really slick.

I'm building my first HTPC. Can I record (not copy) copy protected shows with WMC or XBMC (that I'd prefer to use and not buy Windows 7)? I have WMC with Vista but this doesn't list Vista. I assume WMC lets one also copy protected shows but that is no interest to me.

I have a router with computer and a couple VOIP phones connected. Rather than run a cat cable through the house to get to the HTPC next to the TV can I just put a second modem where the TV cable comes in to the TV, and instead stick it that modem and then the TV into the tuner and tuner to the TV considering that I'm only using it for the tuner to run one TV.


I assume I can buy some TV clicker to run this unit?

If I remember, I'm in for one. Be nice to dump the POS Eth Infinitv 6 and get back to a Prime!

With XBMC you will not be able to record or watch channels flagged as copy once. Silicondust does support Vista (though I don't have personal experience with it) but it should work fine.

You would have to talk to your cable provider, but without buying a second cable plan, probably not.
This unit does not plug directly into the TV. It plugs into a coax line and then to your network. It can be anywhere in the house. How are you currently getting content from the HTPC to the TV?

All this unit does is decrypt the tv signals off the cable line, there is no controlling it. You use WMC/XBMC etc to view/change channels and record content. Hence, the remote is needed to control WMC/XBMC etc, which many remotes will work with the addition of a USB IR reciever. There are even WMC specific remotes.

Hope this means they are coming out with newer prime units supporting web streaming codecs.

I hope there's a future solution without need for dedicated media center PC installation. Because I just need live TV streaming.

Thanks security10, I'm not finished with the HTPC. Looking for tuner, big hard drive, and more current monitor/TV. Ideal would be to completely cut the cable but I'm entertaining this tuner by chance I get complaints about cutting the cable once I find out what I can not get on the internet.
