I see someone "won" on e-bay a malfunctioning DTVPal DVR for $53. I had a starting bid on it for $10 but no more, figuring I might learn something if I got it. Anyone here get it?

In an email to K31GL a few months ago, I asked about program info, and the engineer said they would like to add full EPG but it's too expensive. He referred me to a link on K31GL's web site for...
