Back to the difference to the two devices. The WD TV HD player is just a player, it does not record and the 1212 is just a recorder input box, it does not play videos. Once you record them then you can use your computer or the WD player to play them. I have the 1212 hooked up to a computer that I use to record the programs to one of several USB drives. On my HDTV I use a computer to playback the movies.

I use the WD TV HD player on my wife's HDTV and I will copy the movie she wants to watch onto a 40GB USB drive that is attached to the WD player. For photos I use a 2GB USB stick to load photos for her to view.

The WD should work with your Harmony, but you may have to learn the codes.

There is a firmware update for the 1212 that fixes the optical input for 5.1 surround.

There is a firmware update for the WD TV HD player that fixes many of the file extention issues.
Thanks again Rbinck, I had an extra component cable, and decided to try it out. All of my STB in/outputs are filled. OMG, the picture from the Yippers is 10 times better than HDMI, I had no idea. Let's just say from now on, I will not use the HDMI to view my programming, but you be the judge.

OK, now that I have established that I can have HDMI, S-Video, AV1, and Yipper run at the same time, woo hooo, I have another question..

Can I go from my DVD recorder out through yippers, to my TV 2nd set of yippers, so that I have two perfect pics, and then record using my DVD recorder? Could I record a program on my DVR, and transfer it my DVD recorder via the yippers? I would not even need the Hauppauge then, yes? I'm sure you can pick out the component pic, lol. I think I have to do a little tweeking in terms of the color saturation, but other than that, I'm freakin ecstatic. My Yammy also has yipper in/outs, I've yet to use those.

Hi Sprk, and Rbinck. Sorry, Yammy is short for Yamaha, and yippers are short for component cables.

Never heard that before!

Using a DVD recorder will not allow recording in HD. You can try it and then compare, but I thinkyou will see the difference between the original and the recording. On my 42" screen, I can't see much, if any difference between a original HD program and one I have recorded via the Hauppauge.

Component video 480P over component 1080i or p. If the original recording was excellent then recording on these setting should produce a sharp image.

Yes your correct you don't need that.. You can buy one of those DVD Recorders with Digital Audio Recording which are now available online or at Wal-Mart. They were so cheap at $59 bucks a few months back. Now they're $98 and up.. I have older one I use now and then if I want to connect to my Motorola DCT 6416 DVR/HDTV to pull out recordings. I was able to record HBO, SHO right into my tuners on my PC Video editor but that works also using Mainconcepts MPEG2 Encoder or Mainconcepts H.264 MP4 Recorder..

By the way those are great shots you got there with the DVD Recorder.

Which OS do you have on the computer you'll integrate with your HT? I hear currently Win Vista Premium is all about Media.
