a question by Sep 28, 2010
I've had DirecTV for some time now but I haven't had a DVR and I'm tired of missing my favorite shows. What is the best way to go about getting a DVR or similar service with DirecTV? I believe they also charge a monthly fee to use the service whether you lease one from them or not. Also, would it be a better idea to get a DVD recorder?

DirecTV's DVR service has improved quite a bit over the last couple years. If you're okay with DirecTV's monthly pricing, I think it's only another $5/month for their DVR. The have something new called "Whole Home DVR" where you can share one DVR for all your TV's (so you can watch any recorded show on any of your TV's). If you don't want to stay with DirectTV, I'd check out the Tivo Premiere boxes. Tivo has a monthly fee, but they also have some great internet content as well as part of the service. As far as I'm concerned, for pure DVR functionality, Tivo has the best interface, but it comes at a cost. There's chatter on the forums that a DirecTV-Tivo box may make a comeback in the near future.
