I used the assassins guide built my HTPC and it works great. Is there a solution for recording HD directv from an HD24 that anyone is using? I have seen so much conflicting info it would be nice is someone actually has one that works.
HD video with matching 5.1 signal.

Life is enjoyable with good quality

All you need is the Hauppage HD-PVR or Colossus and an IR blaster and you should be able to record from it with no problem.

Half right, the best choice is the HDPVR or Colossus (component/HDMI). The IR blaster is not needed as you can get network tuning going easily. This is my setup.....2 Colossus cards, 2 directv receivers, and network tuning.

What network tuning do you use?

Is there any advantage between the 2 that would make one better than the other? Also is the software with it good enough to edit the commercials out?

Also there seem to be a couple of models
1212
1445
The HD-PVR2 is at BestBuy, that one any good?

The HD PVR doesnt use an HDMI cable, does it matter? Would prefer to use the HDMI for a single cable solution. Then I can make use of the 5.1 signal.
