Well as promised here is the latest on our Great Experiment. In June we did away with DirectTV, mainly trying to save a few bucks as we'll as become more time conscious. If you think about it, 100 plus channels is ridiculous! We often times found ourselves just flipping through the channels killing precious time. Well, we have really moved into the future today. I purchased a Miglia TV Mini HD receiver/recorder. This little gadget caught my eye few months ago and knew that we would one day purchase one. The installation was incredibly simple. You pretty much just plug and play after a few installations and registrations (minor, don't let this scare you!). The coolest thing about this gadget is the fact that you can do the hole TiVo thing without TiVo and monthly payments. We can watch all of our local TV channels (32 in South Florida!!), in HD through my MacMini on the big screen!!! Add to this the DVR aspect and wow, this is one hot little item. If you are looking to become independent from satellite or cable and want to utilize your computer to the max, this is the way to go. Watch the video below and you can see first hand the coolness.
