I am trying to cut the cord with cable. I am wondering if this is possible.
Media room with a TIVO Premiere DVR for OTA capture hooked up to ethernet line and HDMI to projector
Den with WDTV Live SMP on ethernet and a bedroom with the WDTV Live HD on ethernet.
Is it possible to access the TIVO's harddisk via the WDTV network capabilities to play back a recorded TV show in another room?
I have done this with Windows 7 computer using the WMC and a USB tuner and antennae as the DVR.
The reason for this is that the media room has the projector, and I am trying to kill two birds with one stone, get an OTA tuner for the projector plus the DVR aspect (without the need for a HTPC)
I know that the channel master has a similar device, and when you include the lifetime cost, it is cheaper (BUT smaller hard drive, no netflix, etc)(also hard to find is chanelmaster going out of business?)
Any thoughts on this? Or will I have to manually transfer the files, in that case a HTPC would be best?
