Here is what I am looking for:
RealTV or TIVO (prefer RealTV)
No fee (so no TV guide download)
I want to be able to set it to record from Time A to Time B like a VCR.
Pause, Rewind, Forward live TV
IR Blaster that works with a Samsung SIR-T351
Does it exist? Do you have to pay the fee or lifetime payment? I only watch 4 shows a week, so I'd like to be able to program the unit to tape those 4 times each week and watch them when I want.
Is there an old school unit that might work? I don't even need a lot of space, 20 hours is plenty. I thought one of my co-workers said her GEN1 TIVO (Sony SVR2000 I think) might do some of what I want.
