Worth it for what?
$50 for a parts machine seems a bit pricey to me.

Even it is free, what's good is owning a broken DVR. I will not spend my hard earning $50 for junk. later have to pay to get rid of it.

Yeah, that is kind of funny, isn't it. smile.gif At least this one is actually advertised not to work so you can be sure you will get what you are paying for.

I thought it odd Antenna Logic is selling broken DVR's, but, let's say you wanted a spare hard drive for your DTVPal or CM7000, it's there for the taking. Also, since these units are scarce, for someone who knows how to "fix" them, I think it would be worth the $70.

Oh wow, add insult to injury. $50 for a broken DVR and another $20 to ship it to you.
I suppose if someone really wanted it for whatever.
But this begs the question -- where is antenna logic getting broken CM7000's to sell in the first place.

I thought the same thing..... where are they getting them from ? Maybe, if they were sellling them new or refurbished with some type of warranty, the broken ones are customer returns.

They are also selling original replacement remotes for $60. Any Dish Network remote will work and can be had for $5 - $10. The 5.3, 5.4, 6.3, and 6.4 would all have the same button layout.

The manufacturer may have offloaded any and all stock they had, including returns, at a rock bottom price.
CEM's sometimes do that, and in fact JVC offloaded all their DVHS decks around 2-3 years ago at which time they showe up in various places, including ebay. Those were all new or refurbished. Selling broken units is kinda odd but someone thought they would sell?
