How many cable channels/programs in your system have copy freely set? I can see how useful this is if you have a lot of them, but if most are copy once then I'm sure how useful it is.

How do you deal with a DRM error if the program info says copy once instead of copy freely? Presumably you could disable the channel in the tuner setup, but that's not on a program by program basis.

ION is a better way of solving this. It's less costly than an addon card, preserves the slot for other uses, and gives you a huge 3D boost over the broadcom chip approach which does video well but...

I don't think you can reset the power on/off IR codes for the HD200. Everything else is probably doable, but that's a big drawback.

Why not just use a universal remote?

It's hard for most people to get past the default UI. It's not like anything anyone is normally used to, and it's "busy" and takes time to learn. So you get a "6" instead of an "8" probably just...

Quality on my computer of silverlight sucks compared to the old way. I wouldn't convert if I had the choice. Consoles like the xbox 360 have great netflix quality though. Very odd.

That's a nice unit, but for $400, it's a little expensive for what you get. And the BD model is $250 more.
