BYOPVR Featured in WYFF4 NBC Segment (sorta)

Posted on 19 June 2006 by

I love it when mainstream press picks up on the DIY PVR phenomenon, and I love it even more when get’s a plug 🙂

We didn’t get a mention in the actual video segment: click on JL Make Your Own DVR but we did get some good linkage in the follow up blog post Click On JL: Build Your Own PVR

First of all, let me start out by saying that I love TiVo. I’ve had a DirecTV TiVo, and now I use a cable company provided DVR. Pause. Rewind. I love all the features.

But, I do have a problem with paying for the service month after month. It’s not that I’m cheap, but $10-$12 per month adds up pretty fast – especially if you’re paying for cable and Internet access on top of that.

Thanks for the link JL! If any other traditional or online press folks out there, I’m available for interviews, comments, or background information about building PVRs/HTPC 🙂
