I've been reading a bit about this for a couple hours, but I'm still a bit confused about something.
What is the recommended configuration if I want to capture shows from my dvr?
These are the 2 configurations I can think of:
1. There would be a media director sitting next to the dvr near one TV, capturing the video. Would the captured video stream over the network, to be encoded to a file by the core? If not, then the media director pc encodes to a file on local disk, then stores to the core?
2. The dvr is hooked directly to the core, which in my case would need to by a hybrid since the core would need to be physically close to the dvr for hookup of the video and audio cables to capture the shows. This is not desirable because the core is probably noisy, since it requires the most horsepower and disk space.
My guess is the first one is correct? If not, what am I missing?
