Think of it as a very smart VCR. Instead of recording to a tape it records to a hard drive. Every night the box gets your tv listings (normally a 7 day guide) from replay's guide you can select shows to record. You can set these recordings to record every week. The nice thing about the box is that it will also record your show if it moves a timeslots or nights.
Other nice features like the ability to pause live tv, instant replay, to view from the beginning a show that's currently being recorded, are just a few of my favorite features.
