Has anyone tried this new Yahoo! software?


It says:

"The computer can then record and play back shows on the TV just like with a standalone DVR"


"The cost of a few cables and TV tuner card, in comparison with the hundreds of dollars being shelled out for DVD players or DVRs, could lure consumers away from DVR competitors like TiVo"


"The Yahoo software, as of yet, only runs on Windows and requires a computer with 20GB of disk space to store recorded programs, 512MB of RAM and a 1GHz processor."


"The DVR feature on Go for TV also requires a TV tuner card and connector cables for connecting to a TV monitor. Yahoo also suggests using a remote control, which usually comes standard with the purchase of most TV tuner cards. While the software works with any TV signal, Yahoo recommends a 1.5mbps broadband connection for best results."


Is it for real?

I think you are right. I'm sorry for asking this here, but I thought that this software was just a substitute for a DVD recorder and not a big system as HTPC.


I will be more careful for my posts in the future

Well, an HTPC is a substitute for a DVD Recorder (and more). So is a VCR. And Yahoo's software is but one of many ways to skin that cat.


I think the question is: is a Forum for X the right place to be talking about substitutes for X?


No offense intended at all by the way.
