My wife likes to order little stuff from Amazon that is usually in the $20 range. I've fallen into the bad habit of tacking on a Spindle of OQ BD-R to the order to bring the total above $35 for free...

If you like Roku and Plex, then continue with it and buy one that can be wired. A HTPC is an adventure but is pretty much unnecessary these days. Look at the thread for Kodi/Chromecast...

In a nutshell, hard wire the players. If you just finished running Cat-6, make use of it. No matter how good you think the wireless connection is, wireless is very situational and can be interrupted...

It is hard to make an Apples to Apples comparison when you have the DRM variable to contend with. I'm sure everybody has had the experience of at least 1 disk that slows their rip speed to a crawl --...

Me too. I typically use the AVR any time I turn on the TV but, my wife doesn't like to mess with the AVR if she is watching the TV alone. Since the best audio that can come out of the DVR is DD 5.1,...

Get a WDTV media player and rip the full disk to DVD.iso. It will play the file as if you were playing the disk in a player with full menu support. No need for a DLNA server running. I have over 750...

DVD recorders all have single tuners. That means if you are using the tuner of the DVDR to record something, you would need to use the tuner on the TV to watch another channel live.

You are fortunate. I have generally not gotten more than 15-20 full disk burns out of my DVD-RW disks before I have to toss them.

Wouldn't that require re-coding the video? One would suffer not only the associated PQ loss but a large processing time.

I don't think you'll ever see a DVR+ Plex client any more than you will see a DLNA client. Don't think of what CM is going to provide as "apps". Doing so will give you unrealistic expectations. Think...
