Sorry for the simplistic questions, but I don't use anything cable-related, and need some info for my father.
For recording basic cable (non-HD) from cable or FIOS, is it better to go the cable/FIOS DVR rental route to avoid any issues when they switch to SDV (switched-digital)? Or to rephrase, is it a gamble to go with a TIVO Series2 which could possibly become obsolete when cable/FIOS goes to switch-digital? [or has someone already created an adapter for switched-digital that will prevent the obsolescence of a Series2, for example?]
I have to replace his VCR with something easy to use that won't require any coddling or tech support from me.
