Kinoscope for the millennials! If I was getting Sling TV I'd hook it up to my Philips DVDR to see if it worked, even though if it did work the recording would be in standard definition. I...

It's a roundabout way of doing it, but couldn't you plug the DVR+ into your AV receiver, then use another recording device that is also plugged into the receiver (or directly between the DVR+ and the...

I don't know. I like this, but they sell themselves short. Take your external hard drive to someone else's house who also owns a DVR+ and you have a "whole world solution"...provided they sell a...

Keep in mind that in some respects a TV is the third tuner that the DVR+ currently lacks. For me, the TV, DVR+ and Philips DVDR expand my options to recording three programs and watching a fourth...

That's pretty strange that they don't enforce it We live in a technological age where it is probably fairly easy to comply with the mandate. It's not like you have to hire and pay a minimum wage...

Sporting events and unexpected schedule changes aside, I'd be happy if the DVR+ updated PSIP data every 8 hours, even if it had to wake itself up to do it. That would keep my programming schedule up...

The other day I tried to log on and found out that my password didn't work. So I had to do the "forgot password" process and create a new one before I could log on again.

Two questions: Something not so old, and something REALLY old

I have a couple of speaker questions I could use some help with. First, I have a set of JBL MRV-308 speakers I bought in the mid-1990's. So naturally, being 20 years old they need to be refoamed. ...

I do a cold reboot at least once a week, and psmith recommends a daily cold reboot. It fixes a lot of things, but it doesn't fix the PSIP data switch. And for what it's worth, whenever I do a cold...
