1) I just replaced the disk on a Showstopper and would like MyReplayTV to reload the programs that I plan to record -- Is it possible to force this, or is is necessary to wait till might when it is automatically done.


2) I would like ReplayTV to consider providing a 1/2 price upgrade path for old users. If a user who has a lifetime contract upgrades, instead of paying, say $299 for a new contract, it would be to everyone's best interest if the user could transfer the lifetime contract for say $150. That way the user could upgrade more frequently, ReplayTV would get the extra payment, and if people wanted to purchase the older system, they could pay an additonal $299 for a new contract. Thoughts.


3) Is there some way to "expand" the TV guide so that I can see/schedule more than one week ahead of time? Now that I have a larger disk, I'd be willing to give some of it up for more TVguide?


Thanks

1) I don't think your shows that you had scheduled on your old Showstopper disk will magically reappear on the new disk after a connect. MyReplayTV will think that you simply deleted all your scheduled shows on your end.


3) With the Showstopper you're limited to about a week of guide info. The 4000's and 5000's get about 12 days...

The only way to get the old programming info off of your old disk is by doing a disk to disk clone through RTVPatch from old to new. MyRTV doesn't push info to your drive, it only pulls from.

It sounds as though there is no wasy to force MyReplyTV to be read by my new disk.


On the other hand, I do believe that if do something on MyReplayTV, e.g. Record... or Delete..., then that will appear on my ReplayTV, so I will see if the To0Be_Recorded that were uploaded from my old disk appear on the new disk tomorrow


Thanks, as usual...

Well, there are two possibilities...


1) DNNA can make a profit selling new units $150 cheaper than they are.


If this is so, they would be wise to just drop the price for everyone, and pull in the vast number of people that see $300 as the magic J6P price point. (That used to be the industry standard. It may be higher now.)


2) DNNA would loose money by selling units for $150 less, at which point, they don't want you to upgrade.
