My wife needs her Bravo HD, I need my CNN HD, and we need our live ESPN HD so we can't rid ourselves of the devil (Time Warner).
I am looking for a device that can offer the following:
-CableCARD + DVR: Device must function as a DVR and give us a fluid and snappy UI. The Time Warner rental DVRs are atrociously slow.
-802.11 b/g/n streaming of 1080p content from my PC.
-Can handle a variety of video codecs in a wide variety of wrappers (H.264, MP4, MKV, etc)
-Two tuners are sufficient.
-Price is no object
-HTPC absolutely out of the question - space is limited.
I don't give a hoot about OTA, I live in a major metro city and even here the selection is dismal.
If we could have one remote control my TV and this device, that would be a "nice to have" but not necessary.
Is there one device that can do all of this? If not, what TWO devices combined can give me this?
Thanks very much!
