GOnna have to explore that too as a poor man's way to do it. The thread there is called "So you wanna record hockey video" if you want to follow along.
So I would have to pay more for the STB to be HD. Gotcha! Not going to happen... I hate charter as it is and dont want to give them more money. Just looking at ways to start recording myself.. I got a new sweet desktop built itching to be filled up and utilized to potential!
