Re: [DVR] TiVo vs Windows Media Center?

A similar setup to my own and it works very well:)

I also use an XBox360 as an "extender" and this works well on Verizon FIOS except for HBO. Verizon allows electronic Flags re the HBO channel at the latter's request in order to STOP more than ONE copy of any given HBO program being made. Unfortunately for some sill reason the Flag thinks that playing back fthru the "extender" is comparable to making a second copy and it will not play this way.

By the way the XBox has a FIOS app and streams about 70 FIOS channels thru the XBox separately. I also get ESPN3, HBOtoGO etc etc etc thru the XBox.

MS stopped any real development of the WMC some while ago but did make it compatible with W8. I am willing to bet that when the XBox720 gets rolled out (perhaps end 2013) It will be a full media center/DVR it it's own right.
