All the others appear to get into trouble over content usage rights.
I fear that many that dive into these don't want to know that the content is not ours to do what we want like this.
i live in a retirement village which provides a hybrid cable service contracted from other satellite providers.such as direct, dish and comcast. i would like to record content for later viewing and i would like to be able to stop a show for a short time and restart it without losing content. i have looked at Tivo and Channelmaster. Are there other options and what are good and bad elements of the two named.?
