I've been doing a bunch of reading in the last couple of days, and would like some advice in figuring out if I'm laying out the right plan. I have a currently dead SIR-S4080R. The easy part of the question is how to bring the receiver back to working condition: InstantCake with one of the many old hard drives I have laying around. Will installing via IC help me achieve all the other cool things you can do with this old thing? Specifically, I'm interested in removing the need to make the daily phone calls, and streaming recorded shows to, say, my computer, or maybe an Xbox with XBMC installed. Any help, even if in the form of a link to a thread, is greatly appreciated.
