I have a Sony DVR. Sorry if this is off topic or anything, but it is really unreliable & constantly unstable. What does everyone think of the `Philips DVDR3576H DVD Recorder with 160GB Hard Disc and Built-In Tuner` (http://www.amazon.com/Philips-DVDR35...dp/B0013WM0BQ/
). It's $749... that seems rather steep, unless that's the going rate for a reliable DVR. What about firmware updates? I have no idea how to update the firmware on a DVR... anyone have any experience with this? I'm afraid of messing it up, yet ticked about the high cost of replacing it.
If I do replace it, however, should I go with a Slingbox? I'm hesitant only because the Slingbox comes preloaded with all the HP computers. (Sling Media Slingbox SOLO (SB260-100) (http://www.storecomparison.net/
) or Sling Media SlingLink Turbo Powerline Kit ( SL200-100 ) (http://www.amazon.com/Sling-Media-Sl...dp/B000NJ5VLQ/
