In my reading about Replay and TiVo I understand both can archive to a PC, but neither website acknowledges this. I understand that archiving is easier on the Replay than on the TiVo, but Replay's 4500 FAQ flat-out says thay can't do it at all. Is this a 5000 only feature? the pages for the 5000 make no mention one way or the other. My questions are: Can Both TiVo and Replay, archive programs to PC? Assuming yes, Can the PC's access the shows; or do they save in some propritary format that needs to be sent back to the DVR? Since I have a hard time deleting ANYTHING, (I'm a real pack-rat) I figure the ideal situation would be to be to be able to record something on the DVR, then (if I can't part with it) transfer it to the PC for burning onto a VCD or, better yet, DVD-R. Well, How close can I get to this; can I have my way? or am I SOL?
