Well it certainly is a nasty shutdown... I got an email Friday night that I would be shutdown Monday. There seems to be little concern for the customers, which surprises me as tech support had always been good. I have pulled the network connection, in case there will be some kind of kill signal sent out. At this time I can still watch live TV and I can still set recordings from the empty guide by selecting the time slots I want. Hopefully it'll keep up like this till I find a new option... I would hate to go back to cable/satellite just because I want a DVR. So I have been taking a look at the following: Channel Master CM-7000PAL, Moxi 3-tuner HD DVR, DTVPAL DVR. None of these are anywhere near the cost of the Sezmi (they cost a lot more), so I may use my DVICO HD tuner card in my PC for a while to hold me over.
