no subscription fee

With software like Freevo out there, is there any product that can timeshift television like a Tivo but without the subscription fee?

Surely some hardware manufacturer can see that the biggest thing stopping people from buying a tivo is the unnecessary subscription.

I would just build an HTPC, but that would cost more than a Tivo + lifetime subscription. ugh. frustrating

Thats awesome!! Exactly what I have been looking for. Too bad I already own a DVD player.

Why would anyone buy a Tivo with this thing available?

dmdeane,
That's not a fair comparison

A Better one is: why anyone would buy an BMW 7-Series when a Buick Regal is so much cheaper ? The answer is you see a lot more Buick Regal 's on the road then BMW 7-Series even if the BMW is a much better car. I think Tivo an ReplayTV will find this out also when cheaper competition hit the stores. My guess is J6P will go for the free service PVR/DVR's. Time will tell ;)
