wow, this looks cool. Amazingly small and cheap... If this works well, I may invest in it.
Me too. Way cheaper than DVR.
same here...looks pretty sweet
wtf is hardware compression? the 200 dollar model has it.
That is when the box is a video recorder, and your computer doesn't have to crunch away. If you want to do a lot of recording and whatnot, you need the hardware encoding.
This would be an ok solution for simply "watching" TV. It will eat up a lot more processor than a box that has hardware encoding inside it.
oh... that puts this in a different light. I'd definitely want a hardware encoder then... The $200 model seems like a better deal. Thanks for clearing that up, PB911.
How would this connect to the tv and receive the analog signal?
it uses a seperate bunny ears, or plugs in to a cable, there's a little cable plug on the side.
I happen to be ok with recording eating up my processor. i would be recording cubs games, the daily show, and colbert report (while i'm at school and asleep, not actively using my computer)
is my cpu gonna be able to handle just recording these at video ipod quality while it's doing nothing but recording these shows?
