Anyone know of any DVR-type satellite receivers?

They seem to be common in the rest of the world but we have no program guide in America so I guess an FTA DVR would be less useful here. Im sure you could order one from overseas if you really wanted one.
I think I saw one adverised that could record 5 different shows at the same time while you watched a 6th channel from a max of two different transponders.

Here is one by Pansat.


Mike over at global-cm.net did have these for sale, he is the only dealer I have seen with this but I have not looked at them in awhile either.

I think if someone gets to the point that they are recording 6 shows at once they might need to go outside, get some fresh air and maybe read a book. :)

I'd hate to see the pricetag on that one.

Mike does have the 700
That is probably a good unit since it looks just like my 330A that works so good.

Did you click that link? The Pansat 6000 HXC is displayed there.

Another tactic is to add a FTA card to a computer.
Yes, FTABlog is active again. Why do you ask?

dreambox makes some nice fta dvr's, the 500 can be found for around $330cdn, uses a network fileshare for recording. no blind scan though :( I use my coolsat for that, read the channel list and upload it to my dreambox.

I would say just use a reglar fta reciever and just buy a regular dvr at your local electronic store with dvd burner. I am sure if you wana pay $300 for a dvd recorder and a dvr thats totally separate from fta. Can be used for alot of different things. This is just a suggestion or an alternative.

And this is the cheapest tactic, provided you have a computer already:) :
Starbox sells for $70 - 80 . I try to record with it and ProgDVB - works fine, but USB2 is recommended.
