I'm also running SnapStream on my DVR PC and like it a lot. It definitely has a remote browser interface. I've watched recorded shows from another PC in the house. You can also view live TV, change the channel, etc. The web site (www.snapstream.com) says that you can set up recordings remotely too but I haven't tried that. My situation might now be complicated by the fact that I've loaded Apache on that PC.

Does anybody switched to setting up what to record from TV on their PC? Even with DVR I would like to use the PC to control it. It seems it would be easier to see the whole pictrure this way.
I think most of the DVR software available has the ability to send record requests via the web. Tivo does (I've used it on occasion). I think Snapstream does too (although I haven't played with that feature yet). I do know Snapstream has a web interface that let's you manage the system (it's actually more powerful than the GUI) and schedule recordings, but to do it remotely you have to put the web interface on the outside of your home network (port forwarding). MythTV has a web interface that let's you setup recordings remotely ... same thing wrt the web interface as Snapstream. david -- This is the PC Technical Discussion for iSeries Users (PcTech) mailing list To post a message email: PcTech@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/pctech or email: PcTech-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/pctech.
