Yes, to each their own. Our family has 7 DVRs in our house. (We kinda went with the program that when a non-DVR receiver dies, it's just as cheap to replace it with an old DTivo). We have 5 HDVR2s, 1 HR10-250 and a R15 to test/play with. Each one other than the R15 have been expanded in space and are networked together with all HDVR2's being able to play shows from one another.
Guess what..........ALL of you are right. Because in this situation to each his (her) own - whatever suits you. As much as I try to imagine though, I can't think of why I would need more than 1 DVR in my house though.
Either you just want to argue and get more face time here or you have no idea how to use eBay. I'm guessing you're looking for the face time.
I just checked ebay - you're right, there is a R10 going for 29.99 in about an hour. http://electronics.s...ZR41QQsacatZ293
The auction item you mentioned states:
...and has no bids.
Auction is for a DirecTv unit that we could not test for we do not have the power cord it takes to test it. We have taken a photo of the cord that is needed to use to power it. We do not know the status of the unit. The receiver is in very good shape. Sorry but as usual the auction is for the unit only, no accessories are included. This means no remote, cable, cords, manual or anything else. These items can be found on eBay, and a lot of times the manual can be downloaded at Amazon.
Just below the item you spent the time to research and post is another R10, new in box, with all accessories plus access card, with a day remaining on the auction currently bid at $102.50. Now if you've every tried to purchase an older DTivo on eBay you should be aware the REAL bidding starts about 5 minutes before the auction ends.
I don't know ScoB. I thought you had enuf with this thread but you seem to want to keep adding useful information to it. Ah well, again, to each their own.
