Hi guys, I can't seem to find the answers to my questions so I thought I'd ask here, hope you all can help. 1. If I buy a tv tuner, does the PC have to be powered ON in order to record like a dvr? If so can it be in sleep mode? If it has to be on what power setting should I use? 2. Can I set up windows media center so that I can list movies in the library, but store them on an external hard drive? 3. Can I setup WMC so it records to an external hard drive. I have limited space on my primary drive so I was trying to find out Thanks guys, your help is much appreciated specs: intel g645, 4gb ddr3, 200gb main drive, foxconn rm2-h2 barebones, bluray rom, windows 7 64but ultimate.
