I'm in the market for a DVR. It would need to be at least two channels and compatible with Comcast. I'm flexible with a subscription. I'd prefer to keep the price under $300. What are my options (or links to a good site)?
It looks like I need a cablecard ready recorder. Is Tivo my only option?
Not sure if it's the only option but I love our Tivo. The user software on it makes setting up shows pretty easy. We paid extra for the lifetime subscription, so you don't have to pay a monthly fee to Tivo. It's well worth it as the the only thing that might break on a Tivo is one of the hard drives and those are easy to replace, so the Tivo should keep working for years.
"Happiness and depression are both feelings, just like joy and anger. It's not feelings that give us problems. It's what we do with them that makes the difference."
"When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life."
If you already have a computer that you don't mind leaving on all the time that has a few hundred GB of storage space available, you could turn that computer into a DVR using Windows Media Center with a CableCard tuner like the Silicondust HDHomeRun Prime or Ceton InfiniTV or Hauppauge's 2-tuner variant.
