My PVR was a gift from a friend, but I never really liked it. Anyway, the hard disk recently died. I can still record, but only to USB.


So I am going to start researching a replacement. Anybody got any advice - or recommendation a product?

Netflix :grin:

I used a home-brew MythTV box in various incarnations for years but gave up when the power supply in the last one died. I thought about replacing it and realised that I don't watch TV any more. So I didn't bother.

I have Strong brand STB's...
http://strong.com.au/

I have 2 of them for recording, they have no hard drives, I record to 1 Terrabyte portable drives so I can cap on the PC, edit out video's for Youtube etc

Make sure what you buy is MPEG4 compatible too...

Well, the crappy old PVR finally died: Stone dead; wouldn't even switch on.

So, I now have a Panasonic DMR-PWT560GN, which set me back about $450.

Seems to do all that I want, although getting it to run via my VPN will be my next challenge.


...and, before you say it, Sharkboi :lol:; it is NOT MPEG4 compliant.

However, I have not yet found non compliance with MPEG 4 to be an issue.
If I encounter a .mpeg4 file, I can convert it, but so far I haven't needed to do so.

Anyway, early days, so I'll see how this goes.
