Hey I just want to know, If I have a Basic Motoralla DTC 2224 from Shaw in Alberta, are all channels digital? if that is so, then from what I can tell by searching, I cant do a PVR on my computer. Or are just some channels digital, and others analog. I just want to record channels 3 to like 44 on my computers Hard Drive. I just got the box, from my parents who got the Shaw Box PVR. So I got everything
But when my free trial runs out, I will go back to my 3 tier setup I had before I got the box. And only really use channels 3 to 44, and not the music channels, much less anything over ch82. I think channels 300+ are HDTV.
Also what WinTV PVR do you suggest, I think I would want one that comes with a remote like a Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-350. But it says that it only uses TitanTV.com for USA. I need one for Canada, so what do I need to subscribe to to get my local channels, on my TV-PVR card?
Does the subscribtion, or WinTV-PVR program eliminate the commercials?
Finally how do I output my computers sound to my sorround sound setup? and can I switch it from that back to my computers speakers.
Do I need 802.11b?
This is my computer sys, AMD Athlon 1Ghz cpu, Asus A7V266 motherboard, 750mb pc2100 cas2.5 micron DDRSDRAM, Rage Fury 128 Pro/Xpert 2000 Pro Video Card, Creative Labs Soundblaster PCI 64. I got no problems upgrading my cpu, or even motherboard. I know I need XP Pro to get anything over 160GB HD, but I use Windows 2000 Pro with 300GB HDslave + 60GB HDmaster.
