DIY PVR — “Today on This Old PC”
May 6, 2005
If you’ve got an old PC around gathering cobwebs, Make has a walkthrough on turning it into a PVR using SnapStream’s Beyond TV.
I’ve played with BeyondTV’s trial a few times, and it was never my cup of tea (I didn’t like the picture quality), but a lot of people like it, and you could do worse, particularly if you’re just repurposing an old machine. In any event, most of the advice and hardware he’s suggesting should work for most PC PVRs, so if you decide to give it a go, you can try two or three and find the one you like best.
