so i have the following hardware: asus combo atsc and analog cable pci 1x card (only analog cable hooked up) happaugauge pvr-150 analog cable pci card hdhomerun hooked up to cable, grabbing clear qam vista home premium so i'm wondering a few things. 1) do i need to have media center open for something that is scheduled to record, to record? 2) i also have a tivo and i'm able to do a show title and keyword search, how do i do that? 3) looking to get a remote control that will function well...ideas? 4) DVR-MS files suck, I want to convert them to xvid avis, I think i found a guide, but it will require me to convert them to mpeg - and then reconvert to xvids... 5) can i adjust the volume of certain channels? some of my local HD channels require me to turn the volume way up 6) need an edu guide of channel # remapping and renaming 7) how do i swap between analog cable tuners? i know i can just change the channel from one that is recording and it will swap automatically...but how do i see what is currently recording without digging through a menu?
