Hello, I have a new HP desktop PC, full 1080p resolution on my desktop and monitor, external TV tuner (USB) from HP, and the HR-44 Genie (HD DVR) from DirecTV.
How do I get all of these to work to be able to watch and record live DirecTV on my desktop PC?
I don't just want to watch recorded stuff from my DVR (via Genie Go or something like that), but I also want to watch live programming as well on my desktop PC.
I will be getting a separate Genie mini receiver to hook up to my desktop computer (which I haven't received yet).
But I want to know if I have all the equipment I need already, or if I'll need any additional equipment/accessories.
I have the HP USB TV Tuner, but I am thinking about possibly getting a separate Win-TV (or Hauppauge) capture card (will I need this or something similar to be able to record?).
I guess I need to set it up to get live (high-def) programming on my desktop computer before I even begin to worry about recording anything.
Right now, I'll have to wait to get the Genie mini first before I can attempt to do anything.
Any tips, or suggestions, or instructions I may need once I receive the Genie mini?
Thanks for any help or advice.
