I keep seeing this place on ebay selling hd1000's that have a board removed to prevent the taping of HD content or maybe they were just demo machines.
I have everything else that I need for this project
DTC100
dish 5000
modulator.
So if I got my DTC100 modded and ran the dish signal through the DTC100 to a HD1000...I could tape anything from the dish?OTA or sat as well?
Looks s thought the "crippled hd1000's" are selling for about $300.I would like to know if and how much to make one whole again.Thanks Gregg

Who are you going to believe,me or your lying eyes?

The real value of those machines is a parts bucket to keep the good ones you have running. Withour that board they are simply a mediocre HVS HiFi machine.

It does seem strange that you can't buy the board as a replacement part. It's undocumented and has little chance of being modified into something else.
