The RedButton Software PVR (RBP)
Many other systems which allow content to be recorded on
a computer require additional devices. With RedButton, all that is required is a high definition cable box with a working 1394 port, a computer with a 1394 port, and the RedButton software. While RedButton is running, the computer becomes a PVR, and has the ability to schedule programs to be
recorded at a future time. When the RedButton software is not running, the computer is returned to its original state and
The RedButton software is free to distribute and use.
