I bought the HVR-850 after getting a 22" widescreen monitor for my computer. It was cheap ($45 after rebate) and easy to install (load the software and plug-it in). It works great in terms of functionality. You can put a little window in the corner of your screen and watch while you work. The recorder also works well with or without the timer. The only issue I have is that the max resolution is 800x600. This is fine for a small window, but at full screen, the resolution isn't very good.

-Steve quote

Does exactly as advertised. Receives analog (for connecting to your cable box or dish receiver) and digital (for of-the-air channels) and lets you record onto any file of your choice in MPEG format on you hard drive. This way you can burn DVD's from movies you originally recorded on you TIVO or dish DVR.
