eventually to be upgraded with a much bigger hard drive - waiting on the warranty to run out first
One really nice use of DVA is to be that larger HD. Instead of cracking open your unit and putting a disk in there (which isn't horribly difficult, but does involve playing with controllers and some technical stuff), just leave the original disk in there and let DVA be the larger disk. Setup scheduled tasks to download shows from the unit nightly and add as amany disks as your computer can handle. Play them back on your ReplayTV from the computer (or on the computer too, if you want).
And your warranty is never voided. Plus once you have a lot of shows, DVAs show channelt/category management is a bit more firendly/easy to use than the ReplayTVs.
|All of this doesn't quite work with the TV listings in DVArchive. It (wonderfully) lets me add the secondary lineup, but it insists I can't have a channell offset of 0 for both primary and secondary lineups.
I am reworking this right now while working on a bug release (while this is a bit more than a "bug", it is affecting a lot of people. I don't have any timeline, but I'm thinking shorter than longer.
