    Hiya folks.. have a question for ya. I used to have a stand alone Tivo and now have a cable company DVR that I just hate the guide on. IS there anyway for me to use some kind of pc based DVR with my cable co. and still have some of the recording features such as recording two diff shows at once? If someone could point me in the right direction i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

    I've read a few things about upcoming PC tuner cards that are cablecard compatible. I'm not sure about price though. To get dual tuner functionality, you would need 2 of them also not to mention a dedicated PC running Windows Media Center.

    A simple solution would be wait for the Tivo Series III. Dual tuner, cable card 1 & 2 ready and has a pair of ATSC tuners for OTA digital as well.
