First, I apologize if this is the wrong area, or has been covered before/elsewhere. We're a family of two in a small house, watching less tv as we age (sounds almost perverse, doesn't it?) Consequently the monthly dish charge, reasonable though it may be, is becoming increasingly unnecessary. We've experimented with OTA reception, and locally, we can get two english-language channels dependably with a little antenna and little effort. We will miss the dvr functionality offered by our ehd connected to our vip211k when we depart dish. Is there any inexpensive alternative to acquiring some dvr functionality for the little tv watching we will be doing? Thanks for looking.
