BigJohns, I had the window open to respond to the first post for 30 minutes before resonding. In that time you responded before I did because I was multitasking. Sorry for the confusion. I too was looking forward to a PC based ReplayTV as you describe and feel it would be worth it. However, you could have GBPVR or other HTPC based PVR convert the HD recordings to MPEG then put those into Wirns or DVarchive and also download the RTV recordings and have the HTPC based PVR look at that directory whether local or network. I currently do the second part, not the 1st because of the manual intervention needed to import. It would be nice if an automized plugin were made for GBPVR, Sage, and MythTV for that.
