Re: Will it be cheaper than renting a DVR from cable company

Personally, I wanna know where you are getting your $10-$20 a month per box figures from. Quote me some real numbers here if you will.

Here in Time Warner territory a 'DVR' charge is only made once per household. Then it's a generic 'set top' charge per box. Right now in our region it's running about $6.95 for the dvr fee and $7.65 per set-top. While still a bit high, it's certainly not as astronomical as you think. So if we had 3 dvr's, it would be $6.95+$7.65+$7.65+$7.65=$29.90/mo compared to your $6.95+$7.65+$6.95+$7.65+$6.95+$7.65=$43.80/mo

I swear, some people should have pace-makers installed to free up the resources. Breathing and heart beat taxes their whole system, all of their brain cells wasted on life support.-two bit brains, and the second bit is wasted on parity! ~head_spaz

Cablevision charges $9.95 per month, per DVR plus $6.50 per month for the box rental, making the cost per DVR $16.45 with no discount whatsoever for additional DVRs

That's great Time Warner is so nice... Charter charges $15 for DVR Service (per DVR) plus $5 per set top box. So a DVR costs $20 PER DVR. No discounts for additional DVR's.

Wow...Well, I stand corrected then. If it was that bad around here, I woulda just said screw it and made sure the VCR was programmed and live with the poor quality.
