Re: best alternative to Fios DVR & STBs

The WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor) is very high with our Tivo Premier XL4.

I also have the Silicon Dust HomeRun Prime (3-tuner) configured with my Win 7 machine. I have 2 xbox 360s setup as extenders so they can watch Live TV or whatever I have stored on the Win 7 box.

with pyTivo and kmttg I can easily pull/push shows from/to the Tivo so that means no expensive DVR storage upgrades and I can move things between the platforms with ease.

Since I spend a lot of time on my PC I like having the ability to have TV in a window so if you like that capability consider the Silicon Dust unit.
Xbox can be had for $199 if you need to bring another TV in to the mix.
