I am looking for a solution for scheduled recording of streaming internet video and this is the best place I could find to ask. I did some considerable searching through existing threads and didn't find anything that was a good fit for my situation. Let me explain.
I am probably not your typical HTPC user. I don't own an HDTV and actually watch very little television live, recorded or otherwise. I currently subscribe to the Comcast standard digital cable package and for the most part it is a waste of my money. To date, the only thing that has kept me from canceling or moving to bare minimum basic cable is access to cable news and sports channels. I have recently discovered that a lot of what I subscribe to cable for is now available via internet streaming video (tikilive.com, blinkotv.com, etc.). I don't care much about the quality. However, the one thing that is important is the ability to record shows that air when I am unable to watch them.
So my question is this, do any of the mainstream DVR/PVR packages include capability to schedule recording of streaming video? If not, are there other applications out there that do? If I can find a workable solution, I will gladly cancel my cable subscription.
Any advice is greatly appreciated. If I am asking in the wrong place, I apologize and would appreciate suggestions on the appropriate forum for asking.
