I dont know if this is possible or not but it would really be nice if it was.
I have a main Frontend/Backend that I use to watch HD and SD and it works great. I am thinking about adding anew frontend with an Xbox. I know that the xbox doesnt have the power to play HD but I can think of two alternatives that would work great for me and others i believe.
The best option...
Record the show with my HD card. Then have it automatically transcoded to Xvid HR HDTV keeping the original.
I know how to set to keep the file myth renames it to .old
What i would want ideally when I watch the recording with my HD viewer it would play the .old file that has the full res video but when i connect with my xbox it would play the Xvid version.
The working but not so good method...
When i record a show use my analog and HD card to record a show. Then when playing the show i could choose between which show I would like to watch. But how would i set it to record both shows? Create two recordings and set the tuner to the corrisponding version?
