Although I have a DirecTV Tivo unit which I am very happy to pay for and use the service with, my Dad has a different need.
He currently has 3 VCRs that run almost non stop on weekends recording Golf and PBS. He doesn't want a guide, interest-based recordings, time-shifting. He basically wants a device that will do manual time/date-based recordings the same as a VCR, but without the tapes.
HTPCs are not turnkey enough for him and I really don't want to hack a Tivo or ReplayTV.
