It's explained in the first post of the thread, if you don't know what it is, you probably don't need it. :)

IMO one of the biggest reasons it didn't work out for MS is that CableCard tuners took too long to become readily available. Had that timing worked out then you could have had a really nice solution...

I'm using 64 bit now. The only reason not to go is if you need something like ReClock that is still 32 bit only.

If you're just wanting to archive shows, worst case you could invest in a CableCard tuner and install WMC or some other DVR software on the PC. It's actually easier since you don't have to do the...

I think it is for a certain segment of the population, but a lot of those Netflix subscribers also still have cable/sat services as well. I'll certainly agree for non-sports programming, the balance...

Live sports programming is still the big driver of the current distribution model. Until people have better options to get live sports, the current model will live on. I think that's coming as well,...

I think content is moving more and more to streaming instead of linear channels. So WMC and cable cards will probably survive long enough until that method becomes dominant.

Just IMO, you'll be hard pressed to see significant improvement in PQ from MadVR in that case.

Silicon Dust is developing a DVR solution (https://www.silicondust.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=89&sid=f74170e32e3ca3d58e26f4eaf278c194) that should run on Windows 10. Still in development, so many are...

They are different devices, so while you may be able to get them close to the "same", they may still require different calibration settings.

Speaking as someone who uses an HTPC for their DVR, the need to "copy" isn't so much about making an actual copy, but being able to access the "copy" that is made on the DVR from other systems. I do...

This really isn't probably what you're asking, but I really like the intro to "Oz the Great and Powerful" for showing what CIH is all about.

Yeah, what's the source? If it's a video file you have that you want to convert to MPEG2, then you just need the right software to do the conversion. Doing the re-encode via playback/capture would...

You'd have to re-encode in order to change the codec and that's not possible without some loss in quality. May be a very small loss, but a loss none the less.

Now that FiOS is apparently flagging Fox channels as copy once, the HDHR DVR software may become more appealing for some of us if they can get it working.

A big reason why I used that combo. Most of my content watching is Blu-Ray so MadVR really doesn't do much for me, but the refresh rate switching and ease of use in a CIH setup are why I still...

Simpler suggestion, why not just buy them some DVDs of shows/movies they like. Quite a bit less work that way. :)
