Re: Need El Cheapo DVR suggestions

Thanks all.

With respect to XP vs. W7, I can try them both. But for what I need, which isn't HD, I'm sure either will do the trick.

XP you will either need a) The specific Media Center edition which is highly difficult to find legally these days, or b) a third party solution either free (most of which I don't, personally, recommend) or paid.

Windows 7 from Home Premium on up has Media Center built in which is arguably the best PC based DVR option you can get your hands on. Throw in the tuner and a cheap v1 or v2 MCE remote (often <$20 in MANY locations) and you're set.

I swear, some people should have pace-makers installed to free up the resources. Breathing and heart beat taxes their whole system, all of their brain cells wasted on life support.-two bit brains, and the second bit is wasted on parity! ~head_spaz
