My wife has asked me to make a DVR for our new HDTV... what software is the easiest to setup and use? I want to build a box that I can confidently leave with my wife, and not worry about it going berserk.
We get about 10 HDTV channels on basic (no STB) Comcast service, so no CableCARD or such is needed.
I'd like to be able to remap the weird numbers, like ABC13 comes in at 89.1, NBC2 is at 87.3, etc. , so she only has to punch in the number of the channel she's wanting.
Icing on the cake would be the ability to jukebox all of our DVDs on the harddrive, but it must play within the same software as the DVR...
I haven't purchased the computer parts yet, waiting to see what ya'll suggest. I'm building the case, so it'll match our furniture. :-)
