No, a home network is required to access your media files from your computer. Since you stream your files from your PC to your DVR, a network adapter is required for accessing your PC�s media files.

Yes, there are many benefits of hooking your TiVo DVR with your home computer or with your home network. However, to use your TiVo DVR with your home network, you�ll need to purchase a network adapter and have the TiVo Series2 DVR.The benefits of using TiVo with your home computer are:You don't have to keep your TiVo DVR connected to a phone line. The TiVo DVR connects to the TiVo service every 24 to 48 hours to download your program information. To avoid the TiVO DVR tying up your phone line, you can add your DVR to your wireless or wired network through a broadband connection. Your TiVo DVR will be able to download your program listings through your broadband connection (which is "always on") and won't have to periodically tie up your phone line.You can transfer files and music from your PC to your TiVo DVR. You can organize and view your digital photos from your TiVo menu or listen to your favorite MP3 files. TiVo Desktop is required to publish photo and music files from your computer to your TiVo DVR.Schedule your TiVo DVR to record your favorite shows from the Internet. Use TiVo Central Online to schedule the recordings of your favorite shows. You�ll create an account online and sign in to any browser and send a schedule request to your TiVo DVR. The next time your TiVo DVR connects to your TiVo service, it will schedule the request. Note: If your TiVo DVR connects to TiVo service using a phone line, it can take up to 36 hours; a broadband connection, however, sends requests every hour.can you network a Series 1 tivo unit to you home network??

The average cost for a Dish Network DVR is ten dollars. They are several different DVR packages a person could choose from that will vary the price. Of course this is on top of what you already pay for your monthly package.

Here are a few things you can do with most DVRs: * Record movies and television shows from your cable service. * Pause or fast-forward live TV. * Use the Internet to schedule your DVR to record your favorite television show. This may require the download of additional software onto your PC and/or require you to add your DVR to your home network. * Search your cable listings by actor, time or even director. * Download and share digital photos and music from your computer and DVR. This may require the download of additional software onto your PC and/or require you to add your DVR to your home network.

The only way you can transfer recordings from your 622 DVR is by connecting an external hard drive to one of the USB ports. You won't be able to view the recordings on a computer. The DVR is written in a different language from Windows. The EHD allows for more storage space or if your hd ever goes back on the receiver.

DVR's that have ethernet ports are capable of connecting to the internet. With DirecTV, it is used for On Demand downloads and it is also used to access media on all of your PC's that are connected to the same network as the DVR unit. With TiVO units, you can actually go to YouTube and play media from that site.

It depends... If the DVR was purchased at a store and has a card slot....the answer may be yes. TiVo stand alone systems, Panasonic, ARCHOS... etc If your system was bought from Dish network.... Probably not.

DVR's are actually quite easy to set up and use right away. If you have all the connections and cords, it's basically as easy as connecting your DVD player and shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.
