Can I install a stand alone PVR to my 600 receiver?Is this an easy add on? Yes I am aware Shawdirect sells pvrs built in.I dont want to buy another pvr as I have one already.I can get one used for next to nothing. thanks in advance for the feedback.
None of this is really "easy", so I recommend a PVR. If you wish to record HD, see the Recording HD FAQ, which only really has one option - the Hauppauge HDPVR/HTPC combination. If you're happy with Standard Def, you can hook up a DVD recorder - see the DVD Recorder connections FAQ - complicated for most people, and then you'll need to set up the recordings on both devices, etc. Also, with some recorders you may run into copy protection issues. All of the links have been collected into the first post.
