Getting my hands on a PVR for free

Not since the danish television network went digital have I had a regular video recorder like the VHS machine everyone once owned.

Sure, commercial products exist, but are usually crippled - recordings cannot be exported for long time storage.
A PC running some kind of PVR software will do the trick, but drains power and makes noise. No go.

So, I thought to myself: What's always on in my home, and does not consume oodles of energy?

The NAS device!

That was three years ago. So I suggested my NAS vendor to add PVR functionality to their firmware: TV Station

And now the company has released Video Station.

Wonderful. Goes to show that it is not always a waste of time, giving feedback to companies
