    And yet I record all games period, just in case I am not home or what gave you, and I record all the local teams, which is about 12 teams, and I haven't missed a game ever using a hr, ever. I absolutely rely n them, and they have never failed me once.

    I just don't care to watch commercials ever. It's a waste of an hour of my life. So I record everything and Skip commercials. I will watch the occasional big game live, but lots of times, I'll start a game after it's halfway over, so that I will catch up to live at or near the end of the game.

    Four plus years, never once mimed a lakers game, always use arsl and have done so with boolean search words since they where added. S yeah, I think there is one that works 100 percent of the time. It's all in how you set it up.

    It would have taken a lot more than cooperation to pull that off.

    If TiVo and DirecTV stay in bed together, I wouldn't be surprised to see a next gen TiVo DirecTV box someday on the hr34 platform, which reportedly will do 5 simultaneous recordings...

    Someone with multiple DVRs cannot complain about a 50 series limit. All the DVRs could be HR2x's and you would have all you need.

    Nope. I have lots of dvrs, and I still complain about it. I'd love to see that limit go away, or at least double.

    <sarcasm>Isn't D* a big, evil corporation?? If you listen to the vibe out there in today's world, all corporations are evil. Therefore, I find it believable that they would try to milk every red cent out of us peons.</sarcasm>

    DirecTV is a for-profit company, so while they're definitely not evil, they are trying to make as much money off of you as they reasonably can. However, the 50 SL limit is clearly not one of the ways they're trying to do that.
