that sound like too much trouble to do . I was looking over the internet and seen some mods but they seen too hard . I don't want to brick the machine . My wife would get pissed if I did that . She paid for it from ebay to record her shows when she's at work .
Yes guys I could of got directv genie but Im trying to same some money right now . Its not in the buget for the dvr boxes . They want like a extra 10.00 or 20.00 a box plus it was a extra 100.00 bucks or so for the dvr's them self . We wanted to get satellite and be in buget . If I had extra cash on had then no problem . But Im happy with television other than time warner cable there canceling analog cable and we needed some television to watch . I cant have my senor father not being able to watch television in this house I live in .
So guys the replay tv dvr was a good buy for me . I just recorded G.I Joe last night of it and the picture is great off it Im also betting the sound is 5.1 Dolby Digital too or DTS 5.1 . but my Marantz receiver sr-18 ex is not working right now , Im in the process of fixing her I sould have it working soon with luck .
DVR service is $10 a month for the whole account. The charge per box is $6 but if you replaced your current standard the only increase in your monthly service would be $10. If you were to get a HD DVR it would be $10 more for HD, and a Genie would be $3 more on top of that.
It sounds like a SD DVR might be a good starting place for you as it's a lesser increase but you won't have to deal with the time and money testing different parts to finally get something that will half do what you want.
