So far, for me the nicest thing has been the ability to transfer recordings to my Mac via my wireless network using kmttg, decrypt them, and burn them to disc if I want. The only problem is that I have to use a repeater to get the signal from one end of the house to the other, so transfers are v-e-e-e-r-y s-l-o-w, around 2.5 Mbps. However, I don't need to transfer programs very often, because I archive only classical concerts and operas and the occasional sports or special event. I can let a transfer run overnight and even through the next day while I'm at work, if necessary.
Maybe I'll spring for a pair of powerline network adapters like the ones from WD
and see how much of an improvement they make.
I don't think I'll be using my EyeTV USB tuner dongle much any more, or my Hauppauge HD PVR which I was using to dub recordings from the Sony's component video outputs.Edited by jtbell - 1/22/13 at 9:28pm
