Not sure what category this would be, so apologies if in wrong forum.

I am looking for a box that will transfer my recordings to my PC and my iTunes account.

I am a Windows user with a
Cox cable/DVR box (a Motorolla DXC3400-M) - with an ethernet port;
LG 32"LED with an ethernet port;
And I can connect either one to my wireless router via a wired ethernet cable - or thinking about the Netgear Universal Dual Band Wireless Internet Adapter (WNCE3001).

I have looked at the various Slimboxes; Belkin @TV Plus, Roku's; & Sungale Cloud TV Box (#STB266).

Slimbox seems more for watching live TV and requires internet access if not at home.

The Belkin seems to be my top choice.

I would prefer a device or box that will record my shows so that I can watch them later on my iPad 3 while on vacation - thereby bypassing the need for a network connection (which is why the Sling Box not what what I need - well at least the new 300 & 500 series- the older Sling Boxes might work, but not clear that they will).

Thanks for any input.

What did you end up selecting?

Im looking at using a Belkin @TV and a Digital Tuner to watch when remote. Did you do this? What Digital Tuner did you purchase? Does the remote channel change work OK?

Thank you!
