only R5000-HD will do that offloading if you want preserve original quality,

as a Component output will force you do additional DA and AD conversions, while composite/S-Video will downrezz recordings to 720x480

The Hauppauge HD PVR 2 works well. It can record from HDMI as long as it isn't content protected, which some channels are. Component also works and I think you'd be hard pressed to see much difference on a smaller screen. The manufacturer's site for the R5000-HD says it doesn't support MPEG4 receivers.

My understanding is Weaknees will copy your recordings to a larger hard drive but that hard drive will have to be in the same DVR the original drive was.  There is no way they can record them to another drive to play in another DVR.

They're just taking money for our finding here; we did post a procedure how-to copy from one drive to other and they shamelessly employ it for own profit without pay royalty to originators. :(

There's no reason why they'd have to pay a royalty for that, any more than a car mechanic would have to pay a royalty to the publisher of Chilton manuals if they do a procedure straight out of those books.

Some people just like to pat themselves on the back for any reason they can find.

It's going way off topic ... at least that mechanic will tell you he  is using the book, don't forget he bought the book, not steal quietly

Found a great deal on a used Elgato EyeTV HD DVR http://www.elgato.com/eyetv/eyetv-hd

 

Gonna go this route and see how it works out. I'll report back with the results.


No matter where you go, there you are.
