I am interested in hooking my HR21 to my PC. My motive is to watch directv in a small window in the corner of my screen. I know I can do this with directv to pc but was looking for an alternate solution.

You could use any TV capture device that had RCA inputs.

I use the OnAir HD GT works great also used as a DVR full screen or adjustable/moveable window
