My roommate has it.
He bought it on eBay far as I remember.

And it's a 1-800 if I remember correctly that it dials for the subscription... but I don't know if he's using it.

Well it is possible to use them, I've seen it in action, it's actually a cool thing if you watch TV and tend to get distracted by the phone, etc.. or just like to record a show or two.

I just got this, and it's awesome...you can watch a show for about an hour, and then decide to record the entire thing from the beginning

Roger's digital cable now has timeshifting available ... basically you can watch all shows at anytime up to 3 hours after they have been broadcast.

Granted, it's not as good as a PVR, but it's at about $6/month, it's kind of nice to be able to not have to rush home to catch the start of a program, etc.

Cheers ... Ian

No no, you get the west coast feeds for the major us and canadian networks. Because they're 3 hours off its called time shift. It realistically isn't but its fun watching calgary news.

I was afraid that might be the case, but figured it was too useless of an option for people to actually pay for it.

I thought maybe they were recording each program on all the channels and storing it for for up to 3 hours. That way you could tune in and watch the recorded version of any show. And by only saving 3 hours of video per channel at any given time, a ridiculous amount of storage space wouldn't be needed.

Cheers ... Ian
