hi everyone! I currently have a HR24 and use it with my hauppauge colossus to record to my HTPC. it has worked pretty much flawlessly. Now I have gotten a "deal" on the HR34 and was looking at the tech specs of it and see I will need to convert from Digi Coax to Optical, and have found a converter to do that. other thing is, can I plug in both component/digi coax and HDMI and expect both to play through. I have no problem with this currently and want to make sure that before I get it installed there won't be problems. Otherwise I will need to get a second HR24 instead of the HR34. please let me know if there are any other issues you may think I could run into. thank you!
