8300HD Whole Home

I have an old 8300HD PVR. Can it work with Whole Home and act as a terminal, able to view recordings on a new Nextbox 3.0 PVR? Thanks

No, I had a couple of those and while they will still work independently, they won't be able to access the WHPVR system.

davej13 is correct.

unfortunately, as well as possible hardware restrictions (not able to do the 'networking' part required) they also are not able to use the Navigatr software that the current boxes use as the interface, etc.

LOL! I would consider the SARA software on the 8300HD superior to Navigatr in every way.  The only drawback is only 2 tuners, which is not a huge problem using time shift channels and some people may not like the SD interface.
