    Pls bring this to the US (for $99?), even though I might not have much to record from the over the air antenna.. I saw the promo video and the functions intrigue me.

    pretty cool idea. a dvr from cablevision is ten bucks a month. i’d much prefer a one-time fee.

    Personally, I don’t watch enough TV for this sort of thing to be useful. Only about an hour a week, which has gone down to less than an hour per week because of the Olympics.
