So here is my question:


Is it possible to use the ReplayTV as just a basic PVR box with Commercial Advance. Not using the TV guide at all.


Here is what I was thinking. I can set my ReplayTV on Svideo and NEVER change the change or use the TV guide. Just have it pipe through what it's receiving from my Dish. I would do all channel surfing through my dish.


BUT I should still be able to pause TV on the ReplayTV.

And if I can pause it should do the Commercial Advance.


I was thinking about this when I was dumping our Wedding DVD to the replayTV. The replayTV didn't care about source. And I was able to pause while it was recording.


Any comments? Am I not thinking of something?

The big problem that I have read about is the ability to not keep time. So if you wanted to do a manual record when you are not home the Time may not be correct on the unit and you would have to adjust for this.


Second you would lose all functions of the Guide which I'm sure you are aware of.


I can not think of anything else. I of course am not that knowledgeable about this stuff so I may be missing something.

What you are thinking of will work if you have a Paid lifetime service unit.


But as lawson said. after a while the unit clock will be a problem
