Special Churn thanks to Tivo Lovers for setting me straight.
I think the point about the extra features cuts both ways though. I don't want my recorder finding stuff for me, and I'm certainly smart enough to figure out when my favorite shows are on. If I want a show on my PC...well, that's what BitTorrent's for. Also, none of the networks can stop me from recording a show or erase the tape after a week. I just don't like how this new technology assumes that you're a moron that needs everything done for them automatically.
I just can't believe that there isn't a market for a simple PVR that doesn't require a monthly fee to use.
