Which to get for recording off StarChoice: DVR, DVDR or computer?
I'm trying to make my mind up between getting a DVR, a DVD recorder or a computer for recording from Starchoice.
The DVR is the obvious choice except that the *choice beast is overly expensive and I'd still have to buy a DVD recorder if I want to archive, which I definitely want to do.
The recorder is also a good choice, it's cheaper, can archive but can't time shift HD, it also is more difficult to set up for easy timed recording.
The computer is the most versatile but again can't time shift HD (yet!), is difficult to set up and most of the software seams "not ready for prime time". The good thing is it's easily upgradeable as new technologies come on stream and archiving is a cinch.
I'd appreciate any comments from those that have had a similar dilemma and made a decision, what that decision was and if you're happy with it.
