Just curious whether there is a definitive end date for the guide for the ReplayTV? I have a ReplyTV 4040 with a lifetime subscription with Comcast.

It pretty much works great and even a year or so ago when it forgot I had a lifetime subscription, Tech Support was able to help...

How much borrowed time do I have with it?? :-)

Thanks

Peter

All I've ever had were cable company DVR's just 2 weeks ago got a Replay, except of course for dual tuner and digital channels the replay is 1000 times better. Especially since a couple of months ago cable co. changed software now no fwd advance, search by keyword if your watching channel change it instead it changes other tuner and a dozen other things. I hope they provide it for a long time if not for Ninja Warrior and Unbeatable Banzuke and a couple of other shows on digital channels would be tempted to return DVR to cable co.

"They" do not provide it. The guide comes from Tribune and is the same guide most of the planet uses.

"They" (Replay...errr Denon) pay for it, so they provide it.

I haven't heard anything about it going away.. I suspect it's profitable (monthly subs), so they'll probably keep it around a while.

And we can load the same guide if Replay stops paying for it.

Amazing isn't it, that Replay technology which is what, 6 years old, is far superior to the current cable company dvrs. It's truly a shame Replay couldn't stay in business.

It's even more upsetting to me, that cable companys can just change the dvr software whenever they feel like it, and disable features like fast forward. Ugh.

I hope your read the manual, especially shortcuts. Besides skipping commercials, you can go to the exact minute of the program you are watching, you can go xx minutes ahead and back, xx minutes from the end or beginning, skip pages in the guides and menus, go to where you left off viewing one Replay on another instantly w/o copying, and many other niceties.

I bought my first ReplayTV in 2000 so that makes it at least 9 years old.
That machine still works, although I don't use it much anymore, and it has never been opened up. The seals are still in place.

Yea, the first couple of days I wondered why you could not put number in press right arrow while in guide go that many days ahead like the cable co DVR. Then read remotes tricks in manual saw pressing FWD would go 12 hours or number then FWD to skip days, and the exact time stuff your talking about in play (don't have to watch it take 10 minutes to back up 30 minutes like the cable DVR)
