DVR question for J!NX or whoever

Post by HematiteBones on Thu 23 Oct 2008, 1:22 pm

So... I would like to know how to transmit recorded programs from my DVR (motorala, via suddenlink) to my PC (which is an Inspiron E1505, Window's XP media edition? I have it partitioned to run Ubuntu also, but I haven't taken the time to download the broadcom drivers to connect to the internet yet.)

I've read some vague mutterings on other forums about ethernet and firewire and an ATI all-in_wonder card?

Ideally, I would like to be able to do this without purchasing new hardware. I have been thinking about going the VHS route, but that is a last last last resort.

This is the best guide I've found so far, but I'm not sure if it will allow me to download pre-recorded programs (as opposed to live ones.)

Sigh.

This is a situation that would take me some time to figure out. If you and I could sit and talk about this a little some time in the near future we can see what it will take.

Savvy?

Well, I have class Tuesday and Thursday every week until 8:15p.

I run game on Wednesday from about 10-12p and Sunday from 7-10:30p.

This weekend I am going to be busy with driving back and forth to Houston and Ft.Worth.

I could probably squeeze you in between the 31st and the 1st if that will work. If not then I won't be able to until the following week.

Either way you can alwayss reach me (phone, email, myspace, here). We'll talk eventually I believe.
