I voted 2, because that's what I have now - but I plan on buying a Replay 4500 model when they are released.


Main TV (Pioneer Elite 610HD): Replay 4080

Office TV (Zenith 25"): Replay 3030

Computer Room: ReplayServer running SwapDV (320 GB)

Coming Soon: Bedroom (Sony 35"): Replay 4540

So we count old units that are still in the apartment, but no longer in use?


Oh, never mind. I already maxed out without counting those...

That's a valid question (at least for us). VCRs and PVRs have different uses for us in recording shows. We still have two (of three) VCRs in active use along with two (of three) PVRs.


In general, VCRs get used for recording stuff that's going to be around for a while. This includes kid's shows that will be kept and watched over and over (and over and over and over...), as well as the stuff my wife and I watch but won't be getting to for a few months. Of course VCRs also get used to watch all the pre-recorded kids's movies and the-like.


The PVRs get used for all the stuff we record/watch/delete within a few weeks. Some of us in the family do a better job of keeping up-to-date than others, but the use-model is still valid.


While PVRs have been fantastic for making simple time-shifting of shows easier, they don't replace VCRs for all the things we use them for.

Just 3 PVRs for me, since I don't do satellite and I don't do duplicates -- lots of computers too, but they all run a different-enough OS to keep 'em interesting.


1 VCR still hooked up and in occasional use, to watch all those old porn^H^H^H^Hstar trek tapes.

toots you still haven't overhauled that 2020? I thought that was going to be for Christmas or something? A little late? Or is it now a "research unit"?

I have two VCRs and a few weeks ago I realized that the clocks aren't even set any more.... they just say --:--.


I did use my VCRs a few months ago to copy a few video tapes from work. Used them both!

You're quite correct KenL, 312 is definitely more than 116 :D :D :D
