Am I hearing that I need to buy:
1) A Sony Streaming Player
2) A Hauppuage HD PVR
3) an adapter for HDMI to analog component output
With this scenario, would I be using my computer as the DVR? How do these things hook together and which device shows me what I'm recording?
Is my current Sony BluRay with Netflix app something different than the Sony Streaming Player?
This seems like a pretty big investment to accomplish what I'd hoped was a simple task.
The Haupauge has a pass through so you would not know it's there.
Your Blue-ray only has HDMI output.
The Haupauge PVR only has component video inputs.
So you need a converter like mtallent recommended to use your existing player or a Nexflix player with component video output like I recommended.
Really they are about the same price. I think I paid $70 for the Sony player at Best Buy.
