I've always had two dvrs so I could watch independently of the main dvr, pause and play live tv, etc. The reps told me they have upgraded the satlelite boxes so they can do everything the DVR does. So what is the point of having it as a satellite?
X1 DVRs aren’t independent. It’s true, the satellite boxes can do what the DVR but they don’t have a hard drive and need to communicate with the DVR and they’re cheaper.
In what way are they not independent? What will an X1 DVRs do that the satellite boxes (receivers) do not do?
