The above listed DCR-2650 is probably your best option. It's less than $100 now. Furthermore the 1st Cablecard is often free. So if you go Cablecard only and return the STB you safe money.

This seems to be quite true. All in all there are a number of issues, some seem to be driver related, whereas some are rather playback software problems.

Yes, the latest drivers do cause stuttering for me as well. I tried the beta driver (29291). While that one actually fixed audio issues that were present in previous drivers, it apparently came at...

Yes, that's what I've seen as well. I do get audio out of sync, if the commercials are inserted into the programming.

But the whole thing may well be driver related as well. In my case I've found...

That's not a Colossus problem, it's just Sage. You can playback/record SD Colossus recordings outside of Sage just fine.

The issue is not about mkv playback. The problem is about m2ts playback, and changing the splitter for that doesn't work this way and furthermore breaks live tv.

For me it works perfectly fine on WMC. The quality should be better than through s-video, though probably not that much (and depending on the quality of the source channel)

I like the Colossus better, because it's integrated - but not with Sage.

If you're ripping anyhow then yes, why not convert to mkv. But m2ts is also about direct BDMV playback. And that part is problematic, if it happens to be vc1.

The problem is with the Sage splitter. Your best way out is to use MPC as external player for vc1, since the Sage splitter doesn't get fixed anymore.

That is correct. You can convert non drmed recordings to other formats. For mpeg2 (e.g. ota/clearqam) the included wtvconverter converts to dvr-ms. And that format can be read by many tools.
