View Full Version : Techno Guru Suggestions Needed for HD / DVD Recorder Thing

12-12-06, 09:05 PM
Im after the following, and im not sure if what i want exists.

Basically i want a digital replacement for my vcr/dvd thing with a built in HD recorder that has ability to set with timer, and copy onto PC via Ethernet as a mpeg/divx.

- plays dvds/cd
- plays divx/mp3 on dvds
- is a HD tv tuner / recorder to replace vcr
- can copy recorded files to computer via ethernet

I guess what i want is a multimedia center.

im no longer 31337 .. can anyone give me some suggestions?

Just build a HTPC.

In a rented house, which means i cant drill stuff through walls ... and I dont want a pc in my bedroom .

I had considered it, but wanted something thats an ALL IN ONE unit .... i had a chipped XBOX for ages, but was only good for playin back media i'd downloaded, nothing else .

The ability top copy mpegs to computer would be a bonus, but not absolutely necessary.

I fail to see how a HTPC in a slim case is anything else but an ALL IN ONE unit?!?
It fits everything you want to achieve plus even more.

Not understanding why you need to drill holes either...

Or you could buy built in HDD DVD Recorders offered by Sony and Panasonic minus the HD and ethernet, since they only offer SD tuners variants.
