Heh i wish, even though we chose the one time payment option, we unfortunately still don't own the box
Though i have a dillema, if i decide to get a HVR-4000 and stick it on the HTPC that causes issues with running it to the other TV's.
See, we have a Component cable running to the TV upstairs which is getting HD only for the sports channels since the rest are downscaled. If i decide to run it through the HTPC i dont think i can clone monitor and still have video running since this usually results in a black screen.
Its all very frustrating, i wish everything was simply open standards with no copy protection or anything. Of course the solution would be to buy yet another HTPC for upstairs which would be nice but thats yet more $$$$.
