WMC is in all the premi Win OS, so no big whoop. The problem I have with WMC is that it does not like to play nice with others.

When I say intergrate, I mean using my DVD drive for watching instead of my DVD recorder, or BR player. I like playing video games, via my computer. Plus I can't fit anymore chit under my TV, LOL.

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.

Why would I want to buy yet another DVD recorder? I already have one. Are you saying the one you're talking about has a comp input also?

Yes! You can connect the DCT to PVR card in PC that would work also. Depends on your cable provider. Files get saved as MPG.

Tipster, what is the thing for 59.00 at Walmart that you were talking about?

I don't have any place to put a card on my pc, unless you mean in the usb port.

Be aware what he it talking about is SD only. Personally I wouldn't consider it, but your results may vary. Tip is really into SD video, but since this is a HD forum, it should be clear what is being talked about.

I wasn't sure he was in the US.
They use scart in Europe, yes? Can they record HD, do you know what they use Rbinck?

I decided to hold off on the Hauppauge for now. I have so many movies through Fios, I rarely even use my DVR to store HD content.
I did notice that with Fios, and your dvr even the sd programming is stored as if it's HD. Maybe because it's an HD channel, with sd programs. The DVR just knows it's a HD channel, does that make sense? lol

Yes if it is a HD channel SD will record in upconverted HD resolution. SCART is basically component, just a different connector.

OIC, I thought it was something like that. Do you think The Hauppauge will go down in price anytime soon?

I find HDMI has too many limitations, imo. I like the ease of use of component.

How are you doing that? Are you saying you have a DVR with a HDMI input that will record HDTV resolutions via the HDMI input? Please explain.
