First thing you need to decide is if you really need lossless 7.1, in which case you'll need an old player to go with that old receiver ($400 range, slow, less compatible), or if you can live with...

I'm not implying that. Tivo is special since they created the patents and have been at this a very long time. I'm just saying copy cats aren't necessarily inferior. Samsung is a copy cat of Apple,...

1. You don't. Well, you could do standby, but that's pointless since is saves virtually no power. Alternately, set the box to auto standby after a period of time (4 hrs is the minimum I...

I also think it's sad. But Microsoft willfully killed the product in spite of us begging them not to. So I guess that makes me more angry than sad. I don't know if Tivo planned to target WMC users...

Yes, but no equipment or DVR service fees. Works the same as your HTPC scenario.

Panasonic will play at 1.5x speed with audio, but I've never tried it with captions. Ask in one of the Panasonic threads to confirm.

You don't have to do anything, unless you want to change how skip works, as Kelson said (thanks for posting that, Kelson). DirecTV calls these different skip modes "skip" and "slip". I forget which...

Any JP1 remote should work. We have code for the Enseo HD 2000 and most other devices. See my signature for a list of about 100 options. Harmony should be fine too. Search in my sig for that as well.
