Recording Fios video on HTPC


May 28, 2014
If I build a HTPC, what would enable me to record FIOS shows? Do I feed a HDMI input to the HTPC? How? Can you use a remote with a HTPC?


Yes you can record TV shows, movies and whatever that is coming from your cable TV. With these devices it takes a standard coax cable input.

There are a few options depending on if you want a an internal or external device. All will require renting a cable card which decrypts the cable signal.

For a basic external TV tuner box with 2 TV tuners.

3 tuners external:

Internal card/6 tuners:

No remotes on these models but the 2nd and 3rd options have smart phone apps.

Be seeing you, the Prisoner...
