I would like to not have to have my PC running 24/7. I have 2 WDTV Live units with the WDXLTV firmware on them and was wondering if there is a OTA HDPVR that can be plugged right into the WDTV . Then I would use the WDTV box to access the tuner and record and watch my shows... Is this possible?

I have seen where people are using the HD Home run units with the WDTV but I can't figure out if the HD Home run still needs to be hooked up to a PC.

Yes, the HDHR is just a network tuner module. The WD Live can see it but not use it.

The bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of the low price is forgotten . . . life is too short to drink bad wine
