for 2 hours of non-specific tv. that's like telling my dad he should research, buy and maintain a computer for the 2 emails a year that he sends.

- DVR comes from cable company. It replaces your existing cable box with a cable box that records. You dont buy anything... just generally a $8/mth fee or something...

My parents, both 60+ have 2 DVRs at their house and they watch almost no tv... if you sign up for cable service nowadays you just generally get a dvr...

do you really watch that little TV? I'm on about 3-4 hours /night. haha
