I think my Harmony 300s were about $24 or so each from Radio Shack. They must have been phasing them out, although these weren't "clearance" items.

Of course the 300 is discontinued, but the...

Edit: Not sure where PBonn's post went.

You CAN pause live TV, no need to hit "Record." Like the Magnavox units, the DVR+ is always buffering (for 2 hours) when you are watching. If you decide...

I hope it works for you. Some of these converters cost in the hundreds, so it's always good to hear from a user their experience with more modestly priced units.

P Smith- when you soldered the Sata connectors to the DVR+ for your test, did you use capacitors and a resistor in the area near the Sata? If so, what were the values?

Didn't Walmart sell something similar the the iView/Homeworx DVR? If you already have an external HD, that would be a cheap way to record it.

Looks like the Tivo Mini is $99-$149, and $5.99/mo subscription. So you would be up to $20/mo/approx, or $480 for 2 years of service. About the cost of 2 DVR+ units. Total...
