Record to USB HDD with Roku XR?

Postby redfactionkiller » Thu Sep 09, 2010 12:18 pm

Has anyone written code to allow an external HDD to be hooked up to the XR to record from?
Is it possible?

In case you didn't mean stream/play from, but actually record to, the answer is no. Roku will almost definitely never allow recording of video streams to anything accessible by the end user, or even accessible to developers for that matter. It would make it MUCH harder to get premium content providers to allow channels. Imagine if you could store every Netflix watch instantly title you wanted to a HDD...

kbenson, Thanks. I did mean record.
I wasn't thinking about the implications of hoarding Instant watch movies. :)
Cheers.

But you've given me an idea for another thread.....
