  1. Just wanted to say hello and welcome all the turkey day hackaday folks visiting byopvr today. Feel free to start a thread in the build your own PVR forum
    (anonymous posting is allowed).

    So if you have a question or want any guidance on your DIY PVR quest don’t be shy.

    I’ll also check back here periodically to see if there’s any questions and answer the best I can =)

    take care,


  2. I have a pvr from dish network and have no service with them. I’m running it through my tv via rca jacks so I can watch what I had stored on the hard drive. Can I use this DishPRV508 to record from my tv? I also have a direct tv system hooked up with a r15 dvr (with service). I don’t get out much and just wanted to see if I could hook up another recorder (since I own it anyway).
