The DVR that we got in July 2007 has been returned to Dish. We’re now using a ViP-612: dual tuners, 30 hours of HD recording or 200 hours of SD recording, HD OTA tuner/recording.

I think, in the end, this will cost me an extra $10 month, but it may be more. And another 24 month contract extension. Oh well, we’ve had Dish since December of 1999, no need to switch now.

And, it’s got support for external USB storage, so if you are looking for a Christmas gift idea, NewEgg gift cards are gladly accepted! They will probably get applied to a WesternDigital 1TB My Book.
