Ah, of course. Was several generations behind the times; last I saw a discussion on that it was around burning DVDs. 


"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

All this trouble to get DVD quality resolution? Why bother? 

The time of DVD quality (720x480i and 8 Mbps) is long gone; now your best SD is 544x480 or most is 352x480 with 1.5 Mbps max.

Also HD never been or will close to Blu-Ray quality, the 8 (10-12 sometimes) Mbps and long GOPs are not close to it.

Curious if the PVR2 can record 1080p or 3D through an unprotected HDMI...    Guess I could try to look it up.  I know they've sold a desktop card with HDMI input for some time.  I was unaware of the PVR2.

 

As for protected content, last I checked HBO/Cinemax and STARZ/Encore use some form of HDCP (even on low-def Encore channels) which requires an active HDMI connection (or disconnection from an unpowered TV) to watch through the component output of the HR.  From the OP it looks like the non HR does or didn't have this HDMI problem.

Nope, only up to 1080i and no 3D:
