Hey guys - just found the website and have spent a little time looking around and this forum is great! I need some help please on getting the right hardware/software for recording movies and shows.
**Motorola DCT6416 III DVR - Cox Cable is my service provider.
**Vizio P50HDTV - 50" Plasma HDTV
**Custom built computer (AMD 4200X2 cpu / 2GB RAM / 500GB hard drive storage / dual DVD burners / Windows Vista Home Premium - which includes Media Center Edition / wireless internet network)
My wife loves to record programs on the DVR and although she’ll never re-watch them she will keep them on the DVR taking up valuable storage space. She goes irate if I delete one with her knowing.
I just got the new tv and love it. I now have all HD channels available through Cox Cable and have found that there are so many progrmas I want to record for later viewing but can’t because there is no space left. I just need a way to record a show on DVD for later viewing.
From what I understand my choices are:
- Get a DVD recorder
- Get a tuner card for the PC and use Vista (Media Center Edition) to record the tv shows
Any opinions on the best way to go? Any other possibilities? Thanks!
