  1. OMNI2 in Toronto with HDHomeRun = Black

    Home Theatre Personal Computer & Media Extenders
    Omni2 in Toronto is on 69.1 (51 real). I have an HDHomeRun which recognized it perfectly and displays it in the preview window. When I try to show it in W7 Media Centre it shows as black with no audio. I have seen some posts about this which say SiliconDust blames OMNI, but other tuners work...

  3. Content Protection in Windows Vista Media Center

    Home Theatre Personal Computer & Media Extenders
    I'll start this post by saying I'm slightly annoyed by this, if my assumption is correct. I use Vista Media Center and XBOX360 extenders (rather than pay my provider (Sasktel) $10 a month for PVR service). The other night, my Media Center recorded an episode of "House". I have a bunch of...

    Hello folkz, I'm waiting for Videotron to be installed this weekend, but I wanted to knwo if there was a way to use my PC as a PVR, ideally to record and schedule HD content. I'm not willing to pay $499 for a PVR when my PC has more than enough HD space and is about 8feet from the TV. Any...
  5. Mediaroom Future Upgrades - What do you hope for and expect?

    Telus IPTV (also known as Optik TV)
    I've had Mediaroom for a week now with 1 PVR and 2 regular boxes.

I also really like the remote a lot more than...

  7. ATSC Tuners In HDTVs (see Samsung Poll)

    Over-The-Air (OTA) Digital Television
    My TV has a built in ATSC tuner and I'm wondering what the advantages (I'm sure there are a number) to owning a seperate box to handle things. Of course I read that the LG LST-4200A was the choice of champions (in the mini-FAQ) but are there any really compelling features that make it a must...
