    I'd like to have one, but with the number of TV channels my building offers, it's not worth it. Netflix is a far better option for me.

    I don't feel like paying so much for a hard drive encased in a preety housing. I can easily build one on my computer, just set my tv card to record @ the specified time. Only downfall is that it doesn't have a lovely user interface like Tivo.

    Re: how many people have dvr's

    I'm all about my DVR. Most usable item next to my BB. I copy everything, and what i don't have time to watch, I download to DVD. I'm telling you, I resisted the TIVO thing for years, mostly because I'm cheap, and now I think it's the greatest. No wasted time setting up a video machine, wondering which friggin' tape has what, and being able to quickly switch from one show to the next. It only adds $5/month, but then again, that's with the existing price of the HD box we have. I guess trinybwoy can do the similar thing on his computer, but y'know, the interface is really convenient on the DVR. I don't have a TIVO, just a cable company DVR.

    Tivo ROCKS!!!!!! Just got a second one a week ago for the bedroom. If you have kids, you NEVER get to watch shows you love to watch. Tivo makes it possible. It costs me $20 a month total for the two boxes, but its worth it.

    I do miss my Tivo. I have the cable box DVR from the cable company myself. And it is better than nothing.
    Benifit - the programing guide is the same, no need to connect to the internet or dial up to get it. It is also one box for the DVR and Cable Box, so it takes up less room or it is one less thing to dust.
    What I miss about Tivo - the part that would record other shows it thought you might like based off of what you record already. If the cable company added that it would be perfect.

    Otherwise, I have to agree DVR is #2 behing the BB as my favorite gadget.
    Success is not final, Failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that matters.

    I have a replaytv (one of the ones with commercial advance) that I upgraded with a 200GB hard drive. Also have a comcast dvr. I am still collecting parts to build a mythtv
