I'm trying to record programs stored on my Cogeco Motorola DCT6416 III to my HTPC.
I've tried the Firewire method, and that only works for channels without 5C protection. (Everything I want has 5C on it)
I've got the TV connected to the PVR via Red, Blue, and Green cables (not sure what the term for these is, component?).
The TV says that I am putting out 1080i to it, but I would like the ability to record future 1080p broadcasts, as well as games at 1080p if possible.
I had looked at the Hauppauge HD PVR model 1212, but that is limited to 1080i.
My HTPC is a C2D at 3.8Ghz, so power to convert, etc is no problem.
