If you have coax in the rooms, you might want to consider going with a MoCA (ethernet over coax) solution. It's pretty fast and reliable. If you search for "MoCA" on the forums you can see that...

Not necessarily-the "box" will decode regardless of the "copy protection flagging". So it's "possible" that you have stuff flagged with copy protection that can still be played back by the "box" on...

My (vague and possibly wrong) understanding is that there was no "5C" in the cable transmission only copy protection flagging- the "5C" was something that was applied to the firewire output by the...

It's my (vague) understanding that the 2400 cannot do hardware deinterlacing of 1080i material, even if it lets you enable the feature. If you have $50 to throw at the problem, it might be worth...

Seriously-you can get a 1TB drive for $100 and store 150 hours of HD. Why waste your time trying to get smaller video. If he wants to archive things for the long term, he can transcode it.
