Great, so my replay is worth $0. How is it that nobody has found a way to re purpose these? grr.

Yes, I know that RpTV is going the way of the dinosaurs, but who can live without automatic commercial advance?
So you have 4x replays with lifetime activation? That is $1,200 in activation fees alone. You must really like your Replays
(I don't blame you, if I could afford it, i would keep mine.)
As for commercial advance: Comcast's DVR has a 30 sec skip that works awesome, you just program the 30 sec skip command into the remote, then when a break comes, you tap that baby 4 times or so and you are right back to the action. ( http://dcortesi.com/2005/05/04/motor...0-second-skip/
) I love(ed) my replay, but for the some monthly fee, comcasts features outweigh the replay's.
Also, i am an avid Xbox Media Center (XBMC) user, I have 3 in the house all pulling movies/shows from a central server. It was a great feature to be able to pull shows from ReplayTV for the xboxes to stream.
Are folks holding on to their old replays in hopes that after the replayTV company discontinues ReplayTV service modders/hackers will then find a way to use the units?
