A couple of general Replay questions: What's the Software Operating system? Is it Linux like the Tivo, or what? I'm aching to hack it. I just
bought a new firewire DVD-RW drive I'd love to hook up to it. Do you
know if this is possible?

The Replay is analog only, right? What's the highest channel it can access? I also have a Motorola DCT6412 HDTV Dual Tuner DVR. Nice
box, but half the interfaces are disabled, especially the Ethernet, which
makes it worthless as far as I'm concerned. Any opinions?

Thanks, Jim.

you can always download recorded shows from the replay & record them to dvd - & yes, the replays tuner is analog only. i can't remember what OS it uses, but i know it's more or less propriatary for the replay, so unless you've got inside programming knowledge for replays, it's not likely to be hacked anytime soon.

for now....the replaytv is deal for recording non-HD content to share among multiple units (or with friends...depending on model) and for subsequently downloading to pc and burning to dvd. The Moto 6412 (except for the relatively small hard drive) is ideal for temporary HD time shifting. No way to off-load video with the 6412 except by firewire to firewire recording device (DVHS...alternative digital HD PVR...PC capture).

You can still record HD channels via the svid or rca outs on the 6412 but it will be in 480i/p.
