Adding second HD/DVR

ANSWERED

Adding second HD/DVR

Got a new HD TV for Christmas so want to add HD to it. I already have one TV with HD (Digital Preferred, I think) with a DVR in the house. Can I pick up another DVR and plug it in to the new TV and get HD? Anyone know how much the extra HD/DVR is per month?

 

Thanks for the help.

Re: Adding second HD/DVR

You can cerainly pickup another DVR at the local office, but newer ones might be in short supply around the holidays.  Ask for the "black DVR".

 

You do need to know if you have a TV outlet in the room and it is active.  If not, then you will need to arrange installation of the outlet by someone handy, someone local or from Comcast.

 

Prices vary by market area, some area's it's 7.95 for the additional digital outlet plus $8.00 for the DVR charge.  Some area's it's more.

Re: Adding second HD/DVR

Thanks for your reply. I'm a bit confused.

 

I have cable now to the new TV. It's just going to the little box so no HD. Will that same cable outlet feed HD and it's the DVR which allows for the HD to work?

Yes, since you have a live TV outlet you can just connect the DVR to the outlet.  Connect the DVR to the TV with HDMI or component cables.
