Xbox As Tivo? Recording From Tv To Xbox
« Reply #15 on: November 24, 2003, 06:26:32 PM »


 I was thinking, would it be posible to use Wintv usb found here http://www.hauppauge...ml/usb_data.htm
and plug it into the xbox and boot into linux and use this software found here http://www.mythtv.org/
and get PVR Functionality. There are wintv linux drivers. Reply what you think.

 Depends if the USB card is USB2. If it is then no, if it isn't then maybe.

 The data transfer rate on USB 1.0 is so slow, it wouldnt be worth it.  This has been asked and answered a million times b now.  If you want a PVR, get a PVR.

 it really varies, most are between 20 and 150 bucks though, just keep in mind that xbox has USB not USB2, and that you need to make/buy a usb adaptor for your xbox.

 i was planning on doing this. My Xbox does everything else...why not use it like a TIVO?

Chances are, the USB TV Tuners are gonna have chitty quality -- and even worse capture quality. I'm not getting my hopes up.

This is very nice USB recorder, it uses hardware mpeg2 encoder.
Only problem is to make it work under Linux.
