My first year of service with Cablevision is coming to an end and now have to start paying $10 / month for what was a free DVR.
$120 for a year of a glorified VCR? Yeah, it's a nice device. But are there options? Tivo and Replay have monthly charges.
I looked but don't see DVR boxes for sale at Best Buy.com, etc.. And then how do they get the schedule of shows? are you back to doing it like a VCR - entering specific hours and channels, rather than highlight the show you want to watch?
And I have a Windows Media Center OS on a desktop my son uses. It has VGA and Svideo connectors on the back. I thought I heard windows media center PCs can be used as a DVR? But that doesn't have a coax in connection. It would need a video receiver type of card? And what's the cost of that?!
I am amazed with the economy in the toilet, that watching TV is so expensive!
