    Hello,

    If I build a HCPC will I be able to use it as a TIVO type box ??.

    I've got the Projector now and I'm getting a cacture card.

    Has anyone had any experience with the new Conexant CX23881 chipset, is it compatable with DScaler etc

    Any comments please ?.

    Can I record TV with any sort of quality onto my hard drive ?

    cheers,
    R.

    The simple answer is YES.
    However, many HTPC experts have tried and not been happy enough with the results.
    Something like Showshifter does work but it has it's drawbacks.
    Search for PVR in this forum or showshifter and you may find out more.

    WRT quality, you will find that most solutions have a different settings to trade file size against pq.
    I think many of the problems come with dropped frames and sound synch problems but I've never tried it.
    SVHS video is fine for me at the moment.

    Regards
    Alex
