DViCO TViX 6640N PVR - capabilities and how stable is it?
« on: October 07, 2010, 09:28:10 PM »
SWMBO is getting sick of me always fiddling with the Media Center and has ordered me to investigate alternatives that "just work" so im considering buying 2 DViCO TViX 6640N PVR's - my questions are:

1/ it says dual recording, does this allow for 2 items to be recording while you watch a previous recording or play a H.264 movie over the network?

2/ is it stable, what current bugs plague it?

3/ can 2 6640N on the same network playback TV each other has recorded over the network (like beyonwiz pvr's can).

is there any major gotcha's with them?

Hi Mate,

I purchased a 6600A with the dual tuner bundle aka 6640.

I really enjoy this unit.  With the new firmware 2.0.5 it allows for dual recording while watching a movie or pre-recorded TV show.

I haven't really seen any bugs yet.  I'm pretty sure you would be able to watch the tv over network because they are broadcast as a network share and I can connect to it via WIndows PC so if you set it as a network disk on the TVIX like you would a NAS share (I have these set up for my media files) it should work.  I haven't tested this but it sounds and looks logical.

No major bugs or stability issues that I have seen.

PS:- one of the biggest reasons I purchased this over many other brands was because you can use standard SAMBA shares to connect to all your mdeia files.  Most others need a PnP media service running which annoys me because they capture and list files via the metadata and on my cough "backup copies" cough that can be a bit sketchy.

Thanks Mate, we ended up with 2 TiVo's and the WAF is huge. :)
