In the future when you post a new thread please use a more descriptive title rather than 'looking??'For this time i changed it.I think,therefore i am a hamster.
will be more descriptive in the future.Looks like no one here has any ideas,oh well worth a shot.
No really good ideas, particularly if you are looking for a stand-alone device from an established, reputable company that offers some customer support. What you want to do is probably also a violation of somebody's terms of service, either Roku's or the channels you want to record.
AVerMedia is a reputable company, but none of their products is ideal for what you want to do. They make two stand-alone HDMI capture devices which are primarily used for manually controlled recording, but which include a single programmable event timer. The timer can be set up to record every day at the same time, or just once. It wouldn't be possible to record two shows unattended, unless they were back-to-back on the same channel and you would have to make sure that the Roku is playing the channel that you want to record at that time.
Your info is greatly appreciated,at least it gives me a starting point!
Hauppauge makes a similar standalone HDMI recorder, the Rocket. I don't know if you can schedule recordings with it.
This device was mentioned in another thread a few days ago:
Thanks for the reply ezcapper,I think I am going to wait and see how you make out with the other device you bought for about half the price I read about on some other thread! very interesting.
