Who here has a Direct TV DVR?

I called and ordered one yesterday. There are coming out to install it tommorow. I was not aware that it required another line run from the dish to the reciever??? If you have one, how satisified are you with it??

I don't have it, but I do have TiVo. Now that it is hooked into my network, I'm pretty excited about that thing.

I like it.I dont have the second line yet though.It required a multiswitch and it costs $80.00 at circuit city.


the only problem i have with it is, its slow sometimes to catch up if you flip throught the channels quickly.

good luck.

Not at all helpful to you, but I'm set to put together my HTPC with my Radeon Al-lin-Wonder 9800, HDTV Wonder, and new copy of Win MCE 2005. PVR possibilities abound with 3 standard tuners and a digital tuner ready to rock.

no,the second line is if you want to watch one channel and record another.

you can still watch,record,rewind,FF and all the other good stuff.you just cant watch one channel and record another.

I bought mine for 49.99 at circuit city after someone here posted they were one sale.(sorry id love to give credit but i cant remember who it was)

i just disconnected my old reciever and connected the dvr to the old line.and you have to call them.

You do if you want to take full advantage of it to be able to record 2 channels at once and watch something you have recorded all at one time. I would do it if I were you. I love mine, but like a previous poster, the only drawback is that guide is slow to catch up if you are scrolling through the guide. Hey, you can't have everything right?

i have it

it tooks some time to get used to it... i've had ReplayTv before


the interface for it is slow, and they didn't write the code very "use friendly"

there are waaaay too many steps to do stuff ie 5 clicks when 2 would really suffice.

if you have the option about which DVR unit you can get, i would suggest looking into a upgrade.


i got the cheap one and i think a better one would be worth.


i dont like how it has to upload crap every friggin day either.




all that said, it's a good thing and i like it ... it's pretty reliable and i really like the Season Pass options.



i added a 120 gig hard drive to it ... made a HUGE difference, 40 gigs just isn't enough.

I bought an RCA TiVo at CC that has an 80 hr harddrive for $99. Best Buy has it too. I would recommend the service plan with any DVR as they are not very reliable(it's one the few things I would get one for). I have been through 3 TiVo's.

I bought my girlfriend a DVR for a year from Cox Cable and it blows compared to TiVo. I don't like it near as much, but that's probably because I'm used to TiVo.

I have a Cox DVR and that thing rocks. I don't know why I waited so long to get it. I highly recommend DVR's to everybody.
