Seeing this thread reminded me of a question I've been meaning to ask. My folks currently use a D11 in their RV. They travel all over the place not staying anywhere very long and therefore they are hit and miss whether they have sat service or not. Sometimes they will be on DIRECTV for a week, sometimes they'll be off for a week due to tree cover at a campground or if they are camping without power, etc. They currently use a VCR to record shows and are growing increasingly frustrated with that due to having to figure out what locals to record from if they record from the antenna or having to remember to record channel 3 if they record from the satellite, etc. Therefore I want to recommend they get a DVR. First off, I wanted to recommend to them to get an HR2x as they already have an HDTV, but they have an older dish that doesn't grab the HD sats. Assuming that's going to be too costly to upgrade the dish to HD I am thinking of recommending an SD DVR, but I'm also wondering how the DVR's in general deal with the power on/power off and warm/cold extremes of RV life? Anyone have any experience?
