Bdftv ; I appreciate the info and looked at posted links .
Seems kind of expensive for a digital VCR or HDTV recorder .
Dartman ; As I'm more inclined to run my computer hook ups and have RAID on the Idle unit . Can you kind of detail what's the best set up and which way I should go ?.
I have an unused computer with a high end NVIDA video card , about twenty ft. from my Samsung . I used to use it for CAD work and it's setting idle as I have a newer unit in my office .
I can easily network my office desk top with Cat 5 or 6 too that idle unit or purchase a router hub and run them independently ( which I prefer ).
Then using something like this on currently Idle computer .http://www.amazon.com/Hauppauge-1187...305090&sr=8-14
I would be able to record HDTV onto my currently unused computer. Then play it back on to my Samsung LED unit ?.
I'm interested in the least expensive way of doing just that .
As it's only TV programs and over the Air at that . Once we view them their history as we have NO intentions of keeping them or burning to DVD .
If it were up to me only my DVD collection would be played on HT .
However marriage doesn't work that way , does it !!.
Besides occasional local news and football I have little personal use for the Idiot box .
Thank you both for responding ...
