so I need some help, my parents are getting rid of direct tv and our 4 dvrs and downgrading to cable, inorder to save money. we will have 2 boxes only one is a dvr. if you plug a tv it to one of the lines with no box you get the first 70 channels. This means i wont have a dvr anymore. what can i do.

Pay your parents the extra $5 a month it cost to have a DVR.

At least that is what it cost for me per DVR I have in my house.

yep, you could pay for it. it's amazing how things have changed though, we had 3 channels... only 1 of which really came in well, pretty much up until high school when I paid for cable for the house

if you just use your DVR to rewatch shows, try finding the episodes online. i know Watch TV Sitcoms.Com has all the shows i watch. but for sports your SOL. if you use the DVR for something else then thats a different story.

Celebrate we will, for life is short but sweet for certain!

Using it in the sense of "Made apathetic by experience" isn't 100% correct, but neither is spoiled.

I can't put my finger on the perfect word though.
