I have read a lot on this forum and am totally overwhelmed! Is there any device I can attach to the dvr so I can record something other than what I'm watching? Some kind of cablecard capable tuner?
This recently happened to us when BrightHouse converted from analog to digital and scrambled ALL of our channels. Fortunately, we still had an antenna in the attic and simply connected (piggyback) our two Magnavox 513 recorders to it. While we don't have the variety of channels offered through cable, we do enjoy all of the local TV networks. We're anticipating doing away with cable next year, and replacing it with OWA and Netflix.

Not that I know of. Since the DVD burner has a calibrated Main PCB (CBA in Funai terms) that controls it, you'd have to obtain (or re-program?) a mated PCB, plus all the other things associated with its interaction with the OS.
