Sorry for starting this. I was just trying to warn him of the pain
ahead. DirecTV has a Tivo-HD system for $999.00. It will record OTA-HD
which is the only source of HD content I care about here in SoCal.
During my configuration and setup I said on several occasions to my
wife I should have bought the Tivo. But now I have the Mythtv system
up and running. My wife crashes it on a constant bases and has given
up on it. I haven't had the time to start the investigation process to
identify the source. I will. This is what I've been doing with
computers since I got my first 386DX in 1992. I know I'm new compared
to most on this list. But I'm ok with spending time tweaking systems.
That's why I guess I really like Mythtv. It works and I get to
constantly tweak with it.
