Re: [Television] Recording Illico HD

Buy a used PVR or go buy one at Costco, then sell your HD terminal.

The HDPVR is sold for 300$ at Best Buy this week.

You paid 200$ for an HD terminal (sold for 150$ this week, same store).
With a 100$ difference, I don't see why you complain the PVR is too expensive...

Kijiji works farely well. You post a description and you wait for someone to contact you...

Worst case scenario, you can always keep it for a second TV or sell/give it to a friend.

If I keep the Illico set top box for the second tv - can I still have the Illico HD service on the second Tv without paying extra to videotron?

I think I will buy a Illico HD PVR and use my current non-PVR on a second TV in the bedroom - will I be able to have Illico HD TV on both tvs without paying extra monthly fees?

On your TV bill, you're already paying 3$ for network fees.
When you add a 2nd terminal, you'll pay 4$ more.
If you have 3 terminals or more, it'll be 6$ instead of 4$.

So, if you rarely use the bedroom terminal, you'll be paying 4$ for nothing. Maybe this will be interesting when multi-room will launch.

Is there an easy way to connect the second terminal without paying extra monthly $4?

Nope. Antenna is the only way to watch HD content on an HD set without any terminal.
