There is no need to use hdmi. It offers nothing over component and spdif besides a smaller cable.
You must be using Shawsbox to the hd-pvr correct?

If so then I imagine you are limited to recording and watching one channel at a time correct?

Been wondering since I use a shaw pvrbox for my HD downstairs but for the life of me have never got it to connect to my network. I hardly ever watch anything downstairs so it doesnt get used much. And I have been looking for a solution that would allow me to watch record multiple channels at the sametime across the network at the sametime.

Sorry to the OP for derailing the topic.
