Does losing the tv listing also mean that we cannot control the cable box with the IR blaster? I can program the recordings through DVArchive, but if the replaytv will no longer be able to change the channels of the cable box because the guides aren't in "synch," then it is like going back to a VCR where you have to leave the cable on the correct channel ahead and can't program different channels without manually changing it.
What does manual record mean (of course it is analog)? Now I can manually record by choosing a channel from the TV listings and setting a time. If the listings are gone, then so are the channels, so how can you choose one that can send to a cable box and change it?
Of course, I can plug it back into the wall and get the few channels still provided through analog conversion over the coax. Is that what they mean by "analog?" And those TV listings are going too, so it would all be manual program and analog coax feed, like before they turned off analog TV.
WIRNS is something I may consider, but I am practically all mac, so having to flip back on a PC for that is a pain.
