I have an MDP-120 hooked up to my TV using the DVI daughter card. I was looking to add another MDP-120 to another computer in my house to be able to record two programs at once, but now that the MDP-130 is coming out, that seems like a better choice, what with the QAM support and all. However, I read in this thread that the DVI daughter cards will not be compatible. So, to avoid buying another daughter card and making my first one essentially useless, will I be able to play files recorded on a MDP-130 on the MDP-120 w/DVI? This way I could just set up the MDP-130 on another computer and access the files over the network, alleviating the need for another DVI card.
On the other hand, would this even be worth it? Considering that the 130 will have timeshifting features built in, it may be the one that I want hooked up to the TV. Should I just bite the bullet and get the new DVI card? Are there any other features that I would be missing out on if I used the 120 as the main card and the 130 simply as a secondary tuner? This would be easily solved if the DVI cards were compatible, but I suppose we'll just have to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that there was some fundamental change to the board layout because of the QAM tuner that simply couldn't be avoided, so they HAD to move the pins for the DVI. Right?
