I'm looking for a Multi-tuner PVR that I can use in conjunction with my DirecTv service and MacBook Pro MD101LL/A. Any suggestions?

No such animal exists. You can switch to cable and that opens up some multi-tuner PVR options, but with DirecTV you're limited to a single USB capture device like the EyeTV HD that records over component, if your DirecTV box has component out, that is.

Yeah I've looked at the EyeTV it just doesn't seem like its going to do specifically what I'm looking for. I guess it's just the DirecTv service that's hanging me out to dry here?
