said by L Supreme:I don't get internet from my cell-provider or text, and I still have a land line because cellphones have proven useless in the past when local emergencies have occurred. said by b10010011:
Because one of the advantages to having the DVR located in the home it it still works when the cable is out.
Talk about putting all your eggs in one basket... TV, internt, phone, and now your DVR all dependent on that one cable connection to work.
But don't most provders end up putting all their eggs in one basket in someway?
Can you go online, text or talk to someone if your cell phone provider's network is down?
