Recording Problem: Shaw, Mexico and no PVR
I am living in Mexico with Shaw Direct Sat. I have a Shaw (Motorola) HDDSR600 box, as well as an Apple TV hooked up to my LG TV. I need advice.
My problem is that the HDDSR600 cannot record or, I am told, accept an external drive to record to. I am also told that the HDPVR630s, available from Shaw, are continually breaking down, produce poor recordings and have various other problems. Their cost, here in Mexico, can best be described as outrageous, approximately four times their cost in Canada.
So I am looking for a simple, clean and elegant way to record shows for later play. I would prefer a method that would allow me to record at least one show while watching another.
Beyond the HDMI port on the Shaw box that is currently connected to my LG it has component and digital audio connectors.
Is this possible?
Any help much appreciated.
