Dumb DVRs
My ReplayTV DVR, circa 2000, is better than the piece of crap Motorola Comcast gifted me with. How is it one of the first DVRs on the market has more useful features than one of the most modern? Bloody digital conversion making me have to get rid of my DVR & rent one...

BF & I are eagerly awaiting AT&T's Uverse being available in our area. Then we're switching immediately. Since AT&T will also be providing a DVR, we're not buying a Tivo.

Besides, if we have to pay a monthly fee for the service, one way or another, I see no advantage to owning the box. If someone else owns it, someone else takes the bullet when it dies and provides me another one. If Tivo had no service fee like our Replay did, we probably would have just bought one of theirs instead.

I don't know how nerdy you are, but have you considered building your own Linux-based DVR?
I've heard nothing but good things about Myth TV.
