TV Tuner & Hulu Plus?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I recently copped the Centon InfiniTV 4 since it's going for a pretty low price, but I came across a dilemma. I currently have a subscription to Hulu Plus. The place I'm staying currently has digital cable already (not the one paying for it), so it's possible for me to get HD channels on the tuner, not to mention being able to DVR the shows I currently watch would be great. Hulu's been pretty reliable with the next day service, so I was wondering if it's redundant to have both of them and if so, which one would be the better option? Currently I'm leaning towards the tuner as I barely use Hulu+ outside from my 360, but my main reason for keeping it is that the 360 sucks for playing mkv files with subs and it has a good collection of both international and foreign.

Any opinions are appreciated!

I have a Hauppsuge TV tuner and it works great. Granted I use WMC as my viewer but I have the add-on Media Browser. It's great for displaying your collections of shows better than WMC. If you want to get all the metadata and other details of your recorded shows you could also pick-up Media Center Master. I hope this info is helpful to you.

Here's an example of what Media Browser looks like in WMC.
