Now that I have 1394 mostly working, HD-PVR's transcoding is of
less interest, since I don't buy premium channels. Though it
would let me switch to dish network's cheap HD package, if there
is a way to reliably change the channel. I presume under 1394
they are transcoding an mp4 stream to mp2 which is a shame but that's
how it goes.
And of course, I prefer to play 1080 line video on my 1080 line screen.
