Re: dvr purchase

DVRs can't be purchased.  They can only  be rented, as part of a set-top box.

Re: dvr purchase

What if you've HAD DVR sevices, and really rarely watch any of the stuff it adds. Is downgrading a terrible idea? If not, what should I ask for, from comcast?? I just don't use xfinity...I watch, probably, 10-12 cable channels. Sorry to add this as a "reply", on your question....

Probably best to call Comcast and see what they have for a price you like.  Also, please don't add something to a post that doesn't have anything to do with the original post.. tks.

Re: dvr purchase

I think $16.95 for DVR rental is too high! Does Tvo works with comcast? You can buy those on Ebay

Re: dvr purchase

Tivo does work with Comcast. The Tivo will come with a Cable Card slot. This Cable Card you get from Comcast. It will allow you to access your channels from the Tivo. However, not all locations stock Cable Cards, meaning if you can't find a service location that has one, you may need a tech to bring you one. Also, make sure you get a newer Tivo that supports M Card. It has more features.
