For tivoDesktop/Networking, relating to DirecTV DVRs and receivers. Re-recording the already compressed analog output of the R10 does not make much sense to me. Is it possible to attach the DirectTV R10 to my home network through the usb ports? In this manner, recorded programming could be accessed from PC Desktop through appropriate software like TIVO Desktop or from other tivo's. This capability of the R10 is discussed at http://customersupport.tivo.com/userWelcome.asp?path=2&faq_node=Network. Integrating the DVR with the home network makes much more sense to me.
