I have had both the R-15 and the TIVO HDVR2, not HD but DVR nonetheless....I am trying out Comcast's DVR right now, it is nice - much better than the R15 in that you can actually USE both tuners, but nothing like my old HDVR2...I hope DirecTV comes out with local channels in Richmond - then I can enjoy my Browns again :)...and I hope the new HDDVR is better than the R15 interface.


No, the new HDDVR will be exactly the same interface as all the receivers (apparently that particular design requirement took precidence over actual functionality). What you want, assuming you liked the HDVR2, is the old HDDVR.

What I WANT is to not spend 400-600 dollars on hardware that is not as good as what I can "rent" from a cable company. Say what you want about TIVO, they had it right. It will interesting to keep track of the progress of new MPEG4 DVR for D*....

Well said, good points by both - just sucks to be hog tied now when I was not before, <sigh>....now I have to figure out a way to tell the wife that need to keep my 50.00 per month active so I can watch my Browns in September.....<HONEY, can we talk...>



You can suspend your svc in the offseason so that you only pay for the base package duringthe season.

I need to make sure I don't have to be on any long term deal - I have an exsiting box so if I can do that I am more than happy to pay an extra 50/ month for it
