Could anyone suggest a PVR/DVR solution for recording/pausing OTA HD? I originally had my OTA connection running through my Bell 9242 PVR, but since I cancelled my Bell TV subscription, the PVR is nothing more than a paperweight (ie. OTA is disabled without a live connection to the satellite).
So, I'm looking for something to replace the 9242. I know I could build a HTPC, but all I need is simple recording/pausing of TV and hoping there's a simple solution I can purchase without breaking the bank.
Any advice would be appreciated!
Not familiar with the Bell 9242, though most STBs are made by a small group of manufacturers(Motorola,Zenith,RCAetc)
So you're ditching pay-for TV, in which case you'll need an antenna and an ATSC tuner, I take it that the 9242 lacks one? Are there PCI slots to add one? If so, then you can use the HDD in it and remote, like I said,I'm not familiar with what you have there.
Its' an international forum but members in both Canada and the USA.
I only have an antenna for now and use the MDP-130 but there are myriad sub-forums there.
I too though am looking for a CDN-specific forum as well.
