Dish Network DP625
Multiroom video streaming and third-party PC software make the ReplayTV 5500 series a worthwhile alternative to TiVo for advanced DVR users.
If you're a DirecTV viewer who just can't live without the TiVo interface and can settle for its operational caveats, the aging DirecTV HR10-250 HD TiVo is a worthwhile DVR option.
Sony's cable-friendly DVRs record high-def and include a free onscreen programming guide.
The best interface on the planet and cool network options make TiVo the standalone DVR of choice.
With a huge hard drive and most of the functionality of TiVo, the first "free" DVR is a great value.
A real boon for DirecTV subscribers.
TiVo has announced its first DVR targeted solely at cord-cutters: the $50 Roamio OTA. The bad news? You still have to pay the $15/month service fee, and there's no "lifetime" option.
