and at least one of those ISPs would have to allow incomig connections to port 80. Most block that port. You can run a web server on a different port, but IIRC the Replays don't have a way to change...

I considered mine "useless" because I could use one of the 5xxx units. However, maybe I'll keep it around in case of one of those 'corporate paranoia' problems.

Rhe Replay will not record HD. However, you still can use it with widescreen (16*9). It doesn't seem to know how wide the picture is.

This works well with a modern TV.

I used it with my DirecTV recievers (IIRC, RCA DRD222RD, DRD420RE) which I had frm 2000 until about 2003. I think there a lot of models of different brands that worked with.

It's hard to see in the 4500 picture, but it looks like "Sonic Blue" on the lower right front of the unit.

That was hard to find, but when I did a 2-4-3-Zones-Toggle Clock it showed "11/12/19..". I suppose it's 1999.

I'm currently using my 2020 to play shows that were previously recorded. I'm not sure what I'll do with it later.

I sometimes reach for the Replay button on the car radio.

What year for What?

It showed the ad today. Could it be because the clock is wrong?

Should there be a date on the ad itself? It doesn't show one.

The image is one that I put on about 4 years...

For about 4 years, I've run WiRNS in a virtual machine. Not on Mac, but on Linux. One advantage of the VM is that full backup is easy. The entire Windows disk is a single file on the host system.
