Hey guys, does anyone know of a DVR that i can use without having to pay a monthly subscription? i dont have cable or DISH. Was looking into TIVO, but I don't really want to pay monthly for it. I'm basically looking for a hard disk recording solution that I can use like a vcr tape....i.e. set it to record at certain times when I am not home, and favorite programs when i want to. It doesn't need to be able to access programming info via the phone line or internet. would a tivo unit work like this if i get one without a subscription, or is the subscription required for even basic usage?
Any help would be appreciated. thanks!
