One component out vs two internal recordings.
And the DVR is free - the HD-PVR is very expensive.
And I believe the (very few) 1080p programs I can get are only
available over HDMI so the component out wouldn't work.
At least that's my thinking. I'm not negative on your question. It's a
good one. But why should I buy more hardware and spend money one
electricity every month when their hardware works and only the
software has problems?
Just my thoughts. Thanks for the question.
