I have been devouring this forum for over 2 hours now as a visitor and thought it was time for me to join and ask a question. I have an iMac G4 and am wanting to use it as the tv in my office through my dishnetwork box. Primarily, it will be used for real time viewing, but I like the ability at times to record a show. I have read about the pros and cons of the different options. If I go with the EyeTv 250 or the Plextor, if I am just viewing tv and not recording, will it use up hard drive space while I am viewing or just if I wanted to record?
Thanks for any input.
