Freeview PVR with net


Standard Member
I want a freeview (uk) PVR that allows netaccess (not to stream)
so i can control what gets recorded from work

basiclly i want mythtv in a STB, cause i dont want to build a new machine just for recording tv, i just want an STB

now to get even more specific, I want one that has wifi or can accept a dongle, cause i dont like wires, although if push comes to shove, ill stick it thru a bridge

Either buy a secondhand Tivo, or a Topfield and then connect it to your network via one of the various devices that can be perverted to do so - Linksys NSLU2, Buffalo Linkstation Live, Safecom SWASPUR, Asus WL500gx and so on, or leave it plugged into a PC via USB.

You can then use various packages to enable remote control.

Reading OP's post earlier today, I was almost tempted to give Son_T's reply - but something told me there might be an answer so I subscribed to the thread... and NWhitfield hasn't let me down :D
